  • Have a Fire Escape Plan- For many people, this is a given. However, how many times have your practiced your fire plan? Does everyone know exactly what to do? Have you gone over it and made sure everyone is doing it correctly? If not, now is the time. A simple fire plan could be what saves your family.
  • Be Aware of Cooking Indoors and Out- Summer time is the time for families and friends to enjoy each other’s company. With so much cooking and entertaining, it is easy for something to catch fire.  Make sure everyone is aware of their surroundings and know where the fire extinguishers are located.
  • Fireworks and other Activities- If the area you are making s’mores or shooting fireworks is dry, you could have a fire on your hands. An enjoyable night, could turn into an uncontrollable fire. Know your surrounding and what to do, if there is a fire!
  • Keep Matches and Lighters Away from Children- Children love fire. Keep your lighters and other fire starters on a top shelf, or locked away. This simple act, could save your home.
