Test Smoke Alarms : Take a few minutes to test and replace smoke alarm batteries if needed. Push the test button on each alarm to ensure the alarms are working. It is also a great time to check carbon monoxide detectors.
Install Smoke Alarms : If you don’t already have smoke alarms, install them ASAP! At a minimum, put one on every level of the home, inside bedrooms, and outside sleeping areas. Check your local building codes for additional requirements.
Practice An Escape Plan : Make sure everyone in the household knows how to get out of every room and how to get out of the home in less than two minutes. If a fire occurs in your home: GET OUT, STAY OUT, and CALL FOR HELP. Never go back inside for anyone or anything.
