  • Test your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.
  • Create and practice a fire¬†escape plan.
  • Check your fire extinguishers.
  • Blow out all candles when you leave the room or go to bed. Avoid the use of candles in the bedroom and other areas where people may fall asleep.
  • Keep candles at least 12 inches away from things that can burn.
  • Keep anything that can burn at least three feet away from any heating equipment.
  • Never use your stove or oven to heat your home.
  • Have heating equipment and chimneys cleaned and inspected every year by a qualified professional.
  • Perform a fire inspection in your home and address any unsafe items found.
