Did you know that if a fire starts in your home you may have as little as two minutes to escape? During a fire, early warning from a working smoke alarm plus a fire escape plan that has been practiced regularly can save lives. Learn what else to do to keep your loved ones safe!

Top Tips for Fire Safety


Install smoke alarms on every level of your home, inside bedrooms and outside sleeping areas. 

If a multi-level home, store safety ladders under each bed upstairs.

Test smoke alarms every month. If they’re not working, change the batteries.

Proactively change the batteries every daylight savings change.

Talk with all family members about a fire escape plan and practice the plan twice a year.


If a fire occurs in your home, GET OUT, STAY OUT and CALL FOR HELP. Never go back inside for anything or anyone.
