A fire pit burning with four chairs around it in a backyard. Keep these fire prevention tips in mind, you may just need them one day.

The greatest fire prevention tip you can have for you and your loved ones is having a plan prepared, just in case. Thinking ahead can help avoid fire emergencies with the safety tips below.

Fire Safety Tips

  • Test all smoke alarms once a month to assure it is still active.
  • Changing the batteries in fire detectors should be done every 6 months or when the device begins to chirp. This indicates the battery is running low and needs to be replaced.
  • Have a fire escape plan and discuss it with everyone in the house.
  • Practice the escape plan by doing drills with your loved ones every so often. This can help everyone in the household understand what they need to do in case of an emergency. Remember, practice makes perfect!
  • Be extra careful with candles in the home. Before leaving the room, be sure to blow them out entirely. NEVER leave a candle unattended. If at all possible, consider flameless candles.

In case a fire ever ignites in the home, get as far away from the fire as possible. Call for help from a safe distance. It is NEVER recommended to go back inside under ANY circumstances.
