Candles
Unattended candles are a leading fire
cause.
 Candle safety tips:
 Use flameless candles.
 When you leave the room, blow out the
candle.
 Keep anything that could burn at least a
foot away:
 curtains, clothes, paper, etc.
 Don’t set the candles on anything
combustible.
 Fires can start when the candle burns down to
Electrical Safety
 Do not overload electrical sockets.
 Do not run cords under rugs or furniture.
They can become worn, overheat, and cause a fire.
 Avoid putting cords against walls or across
doorways.
 Use power strips equipped with overload
protection.
 Make sure all power strips and extension cords
Escape Routes
 When the smoke
alarm sounds, you
may only have
seconds or minutes to
escape safely.
 Have a meeting place
for everyone to gather
outside.
 Plan two ways out, in
case one way is filled
with smoke or fire.
Know your escape
routes and practice
them.
Important Safety Elements
 Alarms
Smoke
Carbon Monoxide
 Fire extinguishers
 Residential Fire Sprinkler Systems
Smoke Alarms
 There were 39 fire deaths in Minnesota last
year.
Only six of those deaths happened in homes
with a working smoke alarm.
 Breathing smoke can kill you!
 Smoke is toxic.
 If you must escape through
smoke,
get low and go under the
smoke.
Alarm Placement &
Maintenance
 Make sure you can hear the
alarm in every place in your
home.
 They should be loud
enough to wake you from
sleep.
Check them once a month.
Change the batteries once a
year.
Carbon Monoxide Alarms
 Carbon monoxide (CO) is an invisible,
odorless, colorless gas. There is no way
to detect it without an alarm.
 Minnesota law requires carbon
monoxide alarms in all homes, within ten
feet of all sleeping areas.
 Symptoms of CO poisoning mimic flu-like
symptoms.
 If you’re feeling symptoms, immediately
move to an open window or go outdoors.
High levels of CO can be fatal,
causing death within minutes.
Fire Extinguishers
 Know how to use
them.
 Have them mounted
in an obvious spot
near an exit.
When in doubt, get
out!
Residential Fire Sprinkler
Systems
Fire sprinkler systems save lives
and reduce damage to your
property.
 Only the sprinkler closest to the fire will
activate, spraying water directly on the
fire.
 90% of fires are contained by the
operation of just one sprinkler.
If you have a fire…
 Leave, close the door, and call 9-1-1 from
outside.
 Report ALL fires to the fire department,
even if you think you put them out!
 Don’t ignore alarms!
 Even if your building has frequent alarms, you need
to leave when they go off.
 Once you’re out, STAY OUT!
 Don’t go back inside for possessions or pets.
 Notify the fire department if anyone is unaccounted
for.
You never know when it could be a real fire.
Summary
 There are many ways to reduce your risk of fire:
 Stay focused when you’re cooking.
 Use candles responsibly, or not at all.
 Don’t overload electrical sockets or misuse
extension cords.
 If you must smoke, be responsible for your smoking
materials.
 If someone is smoking in or near your home, check
to make sure that all smoking materials are properly
disposed of.
 Have a fire safety plan and practice it!
 Have working smoke and CO alarms.
 Be responsible.
