Fire Prevention


  • Cooking is the No. 1 cause of home fires and injuries.
  • Smoking is the leading cause of fire deaths.
  • Heating is the second cause of home fires, fire deaths and fire injuries.
  • Electrical failures or malfunctions are factors in roughly 50,000 reported fires each year.

Smoke Alarms

  • Smoke alarms cut the risk of death in a reported fire in half.
  • Install smoke alarms following manufacturer's instructions high on a wall or a ceiling because smoke rises.
  • Save the manufacturer's instructions for your smoke alarm to perform testing and maintenance.
