Fires can be devastating when they happen to you or a loved one. In a matter of mere minutes a residence can be engulfed in flames. Here are some tips to help you prepare ahead of time so you know what to do just in case a fire happens to you.

1. Make sure you install smoke alarms on every level of your home and check them monthly to make sure they work properly

2. Have a working fire extinguisher

3. Keep matches and lighters up high away from children and make sure they know what a smoke alarm sounds like and what to do when it goes off

4. Plan two escape routes and a meeting spot outside the home and make sure all household members know this information. Practice escaping twice a year.

5. Make sure everyone knows how to call 9-1-1

6. Take pictures to document what you own so you can show the insurance company in case a fire happens to you

7. Sleep with your door closed

8. Teach household members to stop, drop, and roll if their clothes should catch on fire
