Smoke detectors save lives.
Install smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and remember to test them and change the batteries.
Create an escape plan
Ensure all members of the family know the emergency exits at home in case of fire, and practice the plan at least once a month.
Switch of appliances
Double check and make sure appliances are not left running after use.
Monitor your extinguishers
Constantly check your fire extinguishers and replace as necessary.
Clean vents and dryers
Clean lint filters after use and ensure all vents are unobstructed and the outdoor vent is thoroughly cleaned.
