Be Safety Smart!
A portable fire extinguisher can save lives and property by putting out a small fire or containing it until the fire department arrives. Contact your local fire station for more information and training on how to properly use a fire extinguisher.
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.
COLD WEATHER SAFETY
Planning for cold weather is essential. Listen to the weather forecasts and dress warmly. Stay out of strong, cold winds. Stay dry and keep active to preserve body heat. Be aware of the signs of Frostbite and Hypothermia.
