How safe is your home?

DID YOU KNOW?

Most fire fatalities occur in your home.
Fire victims die of smoke inhalation, poisonous gases, or lack of oxygen, not from severe burns!
Cooking is the leading cause of residential fires and burns.
Careless smoking is still the leading cause of residential fire deaths.

SAFETY TIPS.

Make sure your family has an escape plan.
Sleep with your door closed. A closed door provides safety against heat and smoke.
Install a smoke detector in every bedroom and change the batteries twice a year, use the time change as a reminder.
Crawl low in smoke. In a fire, the super heated air and toxic gases fill the room from the top down. These leaves a “Safety Zone” of breathable air about 12 to 24 inches above the floor.

Have everyone in the household listen to the smoke alarm, so they will be aware of what it sounds like.
Put matches and lighters out of reach of little ones.
