We encourage you to actively engage in fire prevention and safety in your own home. Learn how to use fire extinguishers, prepare a first aid kit and create an emergency evacuation plan. You may also wish to take a monthly class to learn CPR and First Aid.

More than 4,000 Americans die each year in fires and 20,000 are injured. An overwhelming number of fires occur in the home. There are time-tested ways to prevent and survive a fire. It’s not a question of luck. It’s a matter of planning ahead.
