5 important ways to protect your home from a fire

Install smoke alarms

A home should have smoke alarms installed on every level of the home and both inside and outside of every bedroom.

Have fire extinguishers placed in your home

·   Pull the pin. Hold the extinguisher with the nozzle pointing away from you; release the locking mechanism.

·   Aim low. Point the extinguisher at the base of the fire.

·   Squeeze the lever slowly and evenly, and be aware that it’s normal for the fire to flare up slightly when the extinguisher’s agent hits it.

·   Sweep the nozzle from side to side.

Make a fire escape plan

   

Be cautious when cooking

Don’t overload outlets
