Fire Safety

In the event of a fire, remember time is the biggest enemy and every second counts! 

  • Escape first, and then call for help. Develop a home fire escape plan and designate a meeting place outside. 
  • Make sure everyone in the family knows two ways to escape from every room. 
  • Practice feeling your way out with your eyes closed. 
  • Never stand up in a fire, always crawl low under the smoke and try to keep your mouth covered. 
  • Never return to a burning building for any reason; it may cost you your life.
  • Finally, having a working smoke alarm dramatically increases your chances of surviving a fire.
