Fire Prevention Checklist

Emergency Preparedness


Fires happen more often than we think. In fact, it’s a leading cause of accidental death in the United States. Review this fire prevention checklist to make sure your family is prepared to escape safely from your home if the unthinkable occurs.

Basic Fire Safety Tips

Alarms and Extinguishers

An important part of fire prevention is to test your alarm batteries monthly, and change batteries during Daylight Savings Time. Make sure you have extinguishers and alarms on every level of your home.

Escape Routes

Teach children to get as low as possible during a fire because that’s where the safest air to breathe is. Practice Stop, Drop, and Roll. Also:


Save receipts, and take photos of your household’s valuables as a record at least once a year. After the fire, call your insurance agent.

Your worries are frequently focused on your family’s safety. Give them and yourself further peace of mind by practicing fire prevention. Planning for an emergency now may save your children’s lives later!
