Change batteries in detectors once a year.
Plan an exit drill from your home and practice it!
Have a place to meet outside and wait for the Fire Department.
If your clothes catch on fire “STOP, DROP, & ROLL.“ Don’t run. Fall to the ground, cover your face, and roll around until the fire is out!
Practice this with your kids and use common sense when you using fire around the house. Remember, fire is a tool we use every day.
