Project Impact Fire Safety Tips
Know how to respond to different fire types.
Make ABC extinguishers accessible on every floor (call fire department for training).
Install smoke detectors; test once each month; replace batteries at least once each year.
Identify two escape routes from each room.
Conduct fire drills.
Make sure windows are not nailed/ painted shut.
Establish outside meeting place; never go back into a burning building.
Know where flammable materials are in home/ garage; properly dispose.
Regularly inspect/ clean chimneys.
Do not overload electrical outlets.
Keep folding/ chain-style ladder stored in each upstairs bedroom.
Mark windows of children or others who may not self-rescue.
Make sure address is clearly visible, and fire trucks can reach your home.
During A Fire:
Call fire department.
Warn other occupants/ pull fire alarm.
Get out of burning building.
Small fires: use ABC fire extinguisher; baking soda or pan lid for small oil/ grease fire.
Feel door to see if hot before opening; if hot, very low level window may be option for escape. Otherwise, distress cloth.
If leaving, be prepared to crawl (smoke, heat rise).
Clothes on fire:
