KEEP YOUR FAMILY SAFE FROM FIRE

AUGUST 29TH, 2016

Did you know that a working smoke alarm improves your chance of surviving a home fire by 50%? That’s why it’s important to have a working smoke alarm on every level of your home.

Here’s a few important safety tips:

  • Install smoke alarms on every level of your home, including your basement. Place them near sleeping areas and inside each bedroom.
  • Test smoke alarms monthly and replace the batteries of each smoke alarm once a year.
  • Also be sure to make a fire escape plan with your family, and practice it twice a year. Once during the day, and once at night.
