Fire Safety Tips

  • Remember to change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detector.
  • Practice staying low to the ground when escaping.
  • Always use caution when using candles.
  • Learn to stop, drop to the ground, roll if clothes catch fire.
  • A car with blue lights is a firefighter on their way to an emergency.
  • Matches and lighters are tools, not toys.
  • Feel all doors before opening them. If a door is hot, get out another way.
  • Practice evacuating the building blindfolded. In a real fire situation, the amount of smoke generated by a fire most likely will make it difficult to see.
