Red Cross Fire Prevention Tips

With Christmas upon us, and cold weather taunting us, I have seen a lot of house fires on the news. Firemen say that house fire events increase every year when the weather turns cold. Here are some great tips from American Red Cross to prevent a house fire.

  1. checkmarkInstall smoke alarms on every level of your home, inside bedrooms and outside sleeping areas.
  2. checkmarkTest smoke alarms every month. If they’re not working, change the batteries.
  3. checkmarkTalk with all family members about a fire escape plan and practice the plan twice a year.
  4. checkmarkIf a fire occurs in your home, GET OUT, STAY OUT and CALL FOR HELP. Never go back inside for anything or anyone.

Stay safe and Merry Christmas!
