LOOK for places fire could start. Take a good look around your home. Identify potential fire hazards and address them. If necessary, have a qualified professional correct hazards.

Cooking Fires are the leading cause of house fires in the US. Remove clutter, keep a close eye on what you are cooking, and stay alert.

Heating is the second leading cause of house fires in the US. Have you heating equipment cleaned and inspected annually. Keep anything that can burn 3+ feet away from any heating equipment. Do not leave space heaters on while sleeping or not home.

Electrical Distribution and Lighting Equipment are involved in 34,000 house fires per year. Ensure any electrical work is performed by qualified professionals. Do not overload electrical outlets. Extension cords should not be used for appliances. Extension cords are only intended for temporary applications. Be sure cords are not being crushed or damaged under carpets or doors.

Candle fires are reported on average 24 times per day. Keep candles at least 1 foot away from anything that can burn. Do not leave candles burning while sleeping or when a room is not occupied. Don't burn a candle all the way down, consider the use of battery operated candles.

Smoking materials are major causes of house fires. Make sure to only use fire safe cigarettes and only smoke outside the home. Keep smoking materials in a locked cabinet out of reach of children. Use a deep sturdy ash tray. DO NOT discard smoking materials in vegetation including mulch. Be sure any discarded smoking materials are extinguished by running water over them. Use ecigarettes with caution, do not leave them charging unattended.
