Eliminate Fire Hazards

Kitchen Safety

Never leave cooking unattended, keep cooking areas clean and uncluttered, and don't cook when you're drowsy.

Space Heaters

Keep all space heaters at least three feet away from anything that can burn.

Smoking Materials

Use large, non-tip ashtrays, and soak butts and ashes before dumping them into a wastebasket. Never smoke when sleepy, and never smoke in bed.

Matches and Lighters

Store matches and lighters locked up high - away from children

Electricity

Keep electrical cords out of traffic areas and don't risk breaking the wires by pinching them behind furniture or stretching them tightly around corners.

Candles

Keep candles away from anything that can burn and put them out when you leave the room or go to sleep. Use a stable, non-combustible candle holder.
