Losing your home to a fire is a scary thought, but there’s plenty you can do to prevent fires from starting. Accidents can happen, but you can learn how to avoid a fire from starting and spreading through your home.

Before the Fire

Install smoke alarms that combine flashing lights on every level of your home. Test them monthly and change the batteries every six months.

Keep grills, cookers, and fryers at least 3 feet away from your house and shrubs or bushes.

Always turn off heaters when leaving the room or going to bed.

Service your chimneys, fireplaces, wood stoves, and central furnace once a year.

Store a fire extinguisher on every level of your home.

If an electric appliance smokes or has an unusual smell, unplug it immediately, then have it serviced before using it again.

Never smoke in bed

Always stay near cooking to monitor it closely. Keep cooking areas clear of combustibles, and wear clothes with short, rolled-up, or tight-fitting sleeves when you cook.

Use only child-resistant lighters and store all matches and lighters up high, where kids can't see or reach them, preferably in a locked cabinet.

Never leave burning candles unattended

Look for frayed wires and damaged cords. If you see any exposed wires, unplug the electronics, and replace them immediately.

Create an escape plan and practice them with your family.
