General Fire Safety Tips
  • Keep a fire extinguisher in your home and car, and know how to use it.
  • Dial 911 before attempting to attack the fire yourself, no matter how small the fire seems.
  • Remember that lives are much more valuable than property. If you're out of the building, stay out.
  • Do not smoke in bed.
  • Do not leave your cigarettes or other lit smoking materials unattended.
  • Keep ashtrays away from curtains, upholstered furniture, and other combustibles.
  • Always look for the Underwriters Laboratory (UL) or Factory Mutual (FM) labels when purchasing appliances, storage containers or electrical accessories.
  • Remember that smoke, heat and toxic gases from fires can kill you long before flames get to your part of the structure. KEEP LOW when evacuating.
