Fire safety tips:

  • Create a family escape plan and practice it often.
  • Blow out candles before leaving home or going to bed.
  • Stay in the kitchen when the stove top is in use.

These are just some safety tips. For more information please contact your local fire department or visit  NFPA - Fire Safety
