Good to Know

Fire Safety 101

(Adapted from SCFMD.az.gov)

Install and Maintain Life Saving Smoke Detectors
Smoke detectors are time machines–they give you time to escape by giving you an early warning signal when fire is present. Test them often (weekly), keep them clean and dust free and give them a new battery once a year (except for 10-year Lithium-Ion Batteries). A chirping noise from your detector means your battery is low, OR your smoke detector has reached it’s 10-year life span.


Keep Some Space Around Space Heaters

Space heaters produce temperatures that can ignite ordinary home furnishings. Keep at least 3 ft. clear space around them and never place them close to upholstered furniture, draperies or shower curtains. Buy only UL or Factory Mutual tested heaters with automatic “tip over” shut offs.  Never connect a space heater to an extension cord!


Keep Watch Over Smokers

Careless smoking is the number one cause of fire deaths in America. Never smoke in bed or when drowsy. Wet cigarette butts before discarding them into garbage receptacles. Have a designated smoking area outside so you can keep an eye on smokers and avoid accidents.


Cool Water for Burns

Scalding water can burn just like fire. Cool water helps to stop the burning of skin. If someone gets burned, don’t use butter or some other home remedy. Place the burned area in cool water for 10-15 minutes and seek professional medical help if needed.


Be Safe with Electricity

Overloaded circuits are a problem that can cause home fires. Multi-plugs in wall receptacles should be avoided and extension cords should be limited to temporary use – never run them under rugs or furnishings. When multiple devices are needed, use a surge-protected device.


Taking Care in the Kitchen

Kitchen fires are the most frequent type of fire that firefighters find. Keep lids for pots handy and the handles on the stove turned inwards. If grease catches fire, place a lid over the pan and turn off the heat.


Stay Low and Go!

Smoke is the culprit that claims more lives than the fire that produces it. Try to avoid getting out through the smoke, but if you have no choice, get down and crawl as low as you can to find the best remaining air as you escape.  Smoke is usually lighter than air so will be higher in the room near the ceiling.
