Install carbon monoxide detectors if you don’t have them already. If you smell gas, leave the house immediately and call 911 from outside the home.
If you do use candles or other open flames in your decorations, blow them out when you leave the room or go to sleep.
Maintain Your Smoke Alarms
Remember to test smoke alarms monthly and vacuum to remove dust. The alarms should be clean to work properly.
According to the NFPA, kitchen or cooking area fires are the leading cause of home fire injuries, and the third-leading cause of home fire deaths. Learn and practice cooking safety!
Smoke outside if at all possible, and use deep, sturdy ashtrays to extinguish smoking materials.
Power strips and extension cords
Use only one power strip or extension cord per outlet, and never plug an extension cord into a power strip.
