How can I prevent fires in my home?

Fire prevention is crucial for ensuring the safety of your home and loved ones. Here are some preventive measures:

Install smoke alarms on every level of your home and regularly test them.

Keep flammable materials away from heat sources and open flames.

Never leave cooking or candles unattended.

Avoid overloading electrical outlets and use proper extension cords.

Have your heating system, chimney, and electrical wiring inspected regularly.

Create a fire escape plan for your family and practice it regularly.


What should I do in case of a fire emergency?

In the event of a fire emergency, it is crucial to prioritize your safety and the safety of others. Follow these steps:

Alert others by activating the fire alarm or calling emergency services (911).

Evacuate the building immediately, using designated exits and avoiding elevators.

If you encounter smoke, stay low to the ground where the air is less toxic.

Before opening any doors, feel them with the back of your hand for heat. If hot, do not open; seek an alternative route.

Once outside, move to a safe distance and wait for the fire department to arrive.

Never re-enter a burning building.


How can I properly maintain my smoke alarms?

Proper maintenance of smoke alarms is vital to ensure their effectiveness in detecting and alerting you to a potential fire. Here are some maintenance tips:

Test your smoke alarms at least once a month by pressing the test button until you hear the alarm sound.

Replace the batteries in your smoke alarms at least once a year or as recommended by the manufacturer. Consider using long-lasting batteries or interconnected smoke alarms that notify you when the battery is low.

Keep your smoke alarms clean from dust and debris by gently vacuuming them or using a soft brush attachment.

Replace smoke alarms that are more than ten years old, as their sensitivity may decrease over time.

Ensure that smoke alarms are installed in the appropriate locations, such as near bedrooms and on each level of your home.
