Fire Prevention


The following are simple fire prevention steps that can be taken:

Remember to replace your smoke detector batteries annually.

Keep fire extinguishers nearby (Remember P.A.S.S.)

  • Pull the Pin
  • Aim low, point the extinguisher at the base of the fire.
  • Squeeze the level slowly.
  • Sweep the fire extinguisher from side to side.
  • Call 911

Plan escape routes

Keep portable heaters at least 4 ft. away from anything flammable.

Avoid overloading electrical outlets.

Don't run extension cords underneath carpeting or anything that could catch fire.

Be cautious when using electrical blankets
