25 Fire Safety Tips

In honor of Fire Safety Month, All-Guard has compiled a list of twenty-five fire safety tips to help keep you and your family safe.

  1. Blow out candles before leaving the room or going to sleep
  2. Use sturdy candle holders or hurricane lamps with your candles
  3. Keep candles at least 12 inches from anything that can burn
  4. Try using flameless candles instead of regular candles
  5. If the power goes out use flashlights instead of candles
  6. Store all matches and lighter out of reach of children
  7. Teach kids to tell you when they see matches or lighter
  8. Roll up your sleeves before you start cooking
  9. Move anything that can burn, such as dish towels, at least three feet away from the stove
  10. Never leave cooking food unattended
  11. Put water on cigarette butts before throwing them away.
  12. Ask smokers to go outside to smoke
  13. Unplug small appliances such as hair dryers and toasters after using them
  14. Look for the UL Mark when buying appliances and electronics
  15. Don’t overload electrical circuits
  16. Clean the lint trap and hose on your dryer
  17. Remove any gasoline from your home
  18. Turn off space heaters before going to bed
  19. Schedule an appointment to have your furnace cleaned and inspected
  20. Place fire extinguishers in key areas of your home
  21. Inspect your fire extinguishers at least twice a year to make sure they have the proper pressure  – on standard extinguishers the arrow should be within the green range
  22. Hold family fire drills
  23. Practice “Stop, Drop and Roll” with your kids
  24. Keep a copy of your fire escape plan on your refrigerator.  Check our blog next week to learn how to create a fire escape plan.
  25. Place an escape ladder in upstairs rooms where you may have to exit a window in the event of a fire
