Safety Tips

Though installing a sprinkler system, fire extinguishers, and fire alarms are all great preventative measures to help control or even completely subdue a fire, it is essential to be familiar with basic fire safety procedure as well. Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the safety tips below.

Tips

• Make sure all family members and/or employees know what to do in the event of a fire. Have a floor plan with at least two ways of escaping every room, and have a plan for each floor.

• Test windows and doors—do they open easily? Are they wide and tall enough to ensure easy escape?

• Choose a safe meeting place outside the house or building.

• The amount of smoke generated by a fire will most likely make it difficult to see. Because of this, familiarize yourself with the building to a point where you know the layout by heart.

• If in a fire situation, stay low to the ground when escaping.

• Feel all doors before opening them. If a door is hot, find another way out.

• Practice! Schedule regular fire drills to ensure everyone knows your business or home's fire safety procedures.
