Be Safety Smart!
Test alarms monthly and change batteries twice a year. Make sure alarms are outside of every bedroom and on every floor of your home. All smoke detectors should be linked – when one goes off, they all should sound.
FIRE ESCAPE PLAN
If your alarm sounds, exit your home as quickly as possible. Once you’re out, stay out and call 911 immediately. If you or a family member can’t escape, close the door of the room you’re in and wait for firefighters to preform the rescue.
Plan ahead with your family! Walk through your home, identify and label at least two fire escape routes per room. This is a great way to get children involved in fire safety in a non-threatening way.
