  • Smoke detectors save lives! Install smoke detectors outside each sleeping area and on each additional level of your residence.
  • For extra safety, install smoke alarms inside each room. Keep new batteries on hand.
  • Use the test button to check each smoke detector once a month. REPLACE YOUR BATTERIES – WHEN YOU CHANGE YOUR CLOCK
  • Vacuum cobwebs and dust from smoke alarms on a monthly basis.
  • Smoke alarms become less sensitive over time. Replace your smoke alarm every ten years.
  • Make sure to have at least one or more working fire extinguishers in your home. Keep one in the kitchen. Learn how to use it. Get trained by the fire department.
  • Make sure it is properly charged. Use the gauge or test button to check its pressure. If the unit is low on pressure, damaged, or corroded, have it replaced or make sure it is professionally serviced.
  • Keep blankets, clothing, curtains, furniture and anything that could get hot and catch on fire away from heaters.
  • Plug heaters directly into the wall socket and unplug them when they are not in use.
  • Keep items away from the stove that could catch on fire.
  • Use safety plugs in electrical outlets, especially if you have small children.
  • Avoid overloading electrical outlets and running cords under carpet and furniture.
