Lt Moe's Learn Not to Burn This is a Fire Safety Message from Lieutenant Moe. 

"On this page you will find a fire safety check list for Kids and Grown-ups. Print it out and be sure to review it with each other."


FIRE SAFETY CHECKLIST

  • Keep all lighters and matches in a locked or high cabinet and teach children not to play with them.
  • Educate children to stay away from hot things on the stove or the outside grill. Turn pot handles toward the back of the stovetop.
  • Use electrical outlets safely. Do not overload them or plug more than one extension cord into each. If you have very young children, place childproof plugs in any unused outlets.
  • Replace all frayed, cracked, or broken electrical cords. Keep portable heaters at least three feet away from anything that can burn. Let children know that they shouldn't touch or play near them.
  • Unplug small appliances when not in use.
  • Install smoke detectors on every level of your home and near each bedroom. Let children help you test them monthly.
  • Change Smoke Detector batteries twice a year at the same time you reset your clocks for Daylight Saving Time or for Standard Time.
  • Place fire extinguishers on every level of your home, especially in the kitchen, basement, and garage. Keep out of children's reach.
  • Have a Fire Escape Plan, with two ways out of each room, and a meeting place for everyone to go to outside the home. Practice your Escape Plan with your family often.
  • Make sure all exits from rooms are not blocked.
  • List Emergency numbers near each phone. Teach children to dial 911 in an Emergency.
  • Teach children to STOP, DROP, AND ROLL if their clothes catch on fire.
