Safety Tips

  • Install smoke alarms on every level of your home, inside bedrooms and outside sleeping areas
  • Test smoke alarms every month by pressing the TEST button.
  • Replace smoke alarm batteries in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions, at least once a year.  If an alarm “chirps” or “beeps” to indicate low batteries, it should be replaced immediately
  • Smoke alarms should be replaced in accordance with the manufactures’s instructions, at least once every ten years.
  • Consider purchasing an escape ladder if one of the designated escape routes from the second or third story rooms will be a window.
  • Talk with all family members about 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
