Practice staying low to the ground when escaping.
Feel all doors before opening them. If a door is hot, get out another way.
Install smoke detectors
Check smoke detectors once a month and change the batteries at least once a year. Smoke detectors sense abnormal amounts of smoke or invisible combustion gases in the air. They can detect both smoldering and burning fires. At least one smoke detector should be installed on every level of a structure. Purchase smoke detectors labeled by the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) or Factory Mutual (FM).
Post emergency numbers near telephones
Be aware that if a fire threatens your home, you should not place the call to emergency services from inside the home. It is better to get out and place the call to fire authorities from a safe location outside the home.
Space Heaters Need Space
Keep portable and space heaters at least 3 feet from anything that may burn. Never leave heaters on when you leave home or go to sleep. Children and pets should always be kept away from them.
Smokers Need To Be Extra Careful
Never smoke in bed or when you are sleepy. Carelessly discarded cigarettes are a leading cause of fire deaths in the United States.
Use Electricity Safely
If an appliance smokes or has an unusual smell, unplug it immediately and have it repaired.
Replace frayed or cracked electrical cords and don’t overload extension cords
They should not be run under rugs. Never tamper with the fuse box or use the improper size fuse.
Be careful in the kitchen
Don't leave cooking food unattended
