Safety Tips


  • Every family in the U.S. should practice exiting their home as quickly as possible through the nearest exit
  • Parents should explain to their children that exiting their home as quickly as possible and not returning into the home is most important
  • Develop a plan with a meeting point outside the home and drill this plan with your family
  • Know that most fires occur within the home, and your home is where you spend the majority of your time. This is an important reason for practicing your plan!
  • If your home has unusual problems, finding them before a fire occurs could prevent a tragedy
