October is Fire Prevention Month.
Take this opportunity to learn how to protect yourself and your loved ones. 

Did you know? Almost 60% of reported home fire deaths from 2007-2011 resulted from fires in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms. 

 Tips on avoiding common causes of fires

  • Cooking-related fires: The leading cause of fires in the kitchen is unattended cooking. Stay in the kitchen while frying, grilling or broiling food. Turn off the stove if leaving the kitchen for even a short period of time.
  • Candle-related fires: More than half of all candle fires start when things that can burn are too close to the candle. Keep candles at least 12 inches away from anything that can burn.
  • Heating-related fires: Remember to turn portable heaters off when leaving the room or going to bed.
  • Electrical-related fires: Only plug one heat-producing appliance (such as a coffee maker, toaster, space heater, etc.) into a receptacle outlet at a time.
