Home fire prevention is everyone’s responsibility, and with some common sense applied to every day activities, most fires can be prevented.

Unattended cooking is the leading cause of kitchen fires, so never leave a stove/kitchen unattended. · Know how to put out a pan fire by putting a lid over it or pouring salt on it. Never pour water on a grease fire. · Keep anything that’s combustible at least three feet away from the cook top. · When using a BBQ grill be sure to keep it several feet away from walls and shrubs’ and anything combustible, and do not leave it unattended. · Because children are fascinated by matches and fire, be sure matches and lighters are kept in a secure place away from children.

Fire extinguishers should be handy and available, especially in kitchens and furnace rooms. ·Have an escape route for your family, practice twice a year and have a meeting place outside the home. Try to have two exits from each room in case one is blocked. · Smoke detectors are a necessity and should be in or outside all bedrooms and on all levels. They should be tested monthly and the batteries should be replaced twice a year
