    1.Watch your cooking: Stay in the kitchen when you are frying, grilling, or broiling food. If
    you must leave, even for a short time, turn off the stove.

    from anything that can burn. Turn off heaters when you leave the room or go to sleep.

    3.Smoke outside: Ask smokers to smoke outside. Have sturdy, deep ashtrays for
    smokers.

    4.Keep matches and lighters out of reach: Keep matches and lighters up high, out of the
    reach of children, preferably in a cabinet with a child lock.

    5.Inspect electrical cords: Replace cords that are cracked, damaged, have broken plugs,
    or have loose connections.

    6.Candles Be careful when using candles: Keep candles at least one foot from anything
    that can burn. Blow out candles when you leave the room or go to sleep.

    7.Have a home fire escape plan: Make a home fire escape plan and practice it at least
    twice a year.

    8.Install smoke alarms: Install smoke alarms on every level of your home, inside
    bedrooms and outside sleeping areas. Interconnect smoke alarms throughout the
    home. When one sounds, they all sound.

    9.Test smoke alarms: Test smoke alarms at least once a month and replace conventional
    batteries once a year or when the alarm “chirps” to tell you the battery is low. Replace
    any smoke alarm that is more than 10 years old.

    10.Install sprinklers: If you are building or remodeling your home, install residential fire
    sprinklers. Sprinklers can contain and may even extinguish a fire in less time than it
    would take the fire department to arrive
