Residential Fire Prevention and Safety

There are many things that you can do to prevent a fire or ensure safety at home from a fire. The following are some of the ways to protect yourself from becoming an unnecessary victim.

Be sure your home has:
At least one operating smoke detector
A working fire extinguisher
Regular fireplace & chimney cleaning to prevent chimney fires
Do not smoke indoors
A fire proof container to empty fireplace ashes


Make sure you and your family have determined:
An escape plan with two different ways out
Someone assigned to call 911
Someone assigned to help disabled people get out
A meeting place for everyone once they are outside
Practice fire drills regularly using your escape plan!


 

 

  • Things to remember when cooking:
    Never leave the stove/oven unattended
    Wear clothes without excess material that could catch fire
    Keep lids on all pots and pans being used
    Keep the cooking area clear of flammable materials
    Keep pot and pan handles facing inward on the stove
    Keep small children away from the area while in use


    Things to remember about electricity:
  • Avoid using extension cords wherever possible
  • Never run extension cords under rugs or carpeting
  • Replace any frayed or cracked extension cords
  • Do not tamper with your fuse box or use incorrect fuses
  • Immediately unplug any electrical appliance that smokes or has an unusual smell, and don't use it until checked or repaired.
  • Keep space heaters at least three feet away from anything flammable


    What to do if you have a fire
    If you do have a fire
  • Crawl low under the smoke.
  • Before opening, feel doors with the back of your hand for heat.
  • Open doors slowly and be ready to close them if fire is on the other side.
  • Close any doors you safely can as you are leaving.
  • DON'T GO BACK IN FOR ANY REASON ONCE OUT OF THE BUILDING!
  • Exit as quickly and safely as possible.
  • Once outside, find a phone and call 911 to report the fire.
  • If your clothes catch on fire: STOP, DROP and ROLL (while covering your face with your hands) until the fire is extinguished.
  • Provide any important information to the fire department that you can, including: Where the fire is located inside the building, If anyone is still in the house or building and where they might be located, Any hazards that might be in the house or building
