    Know the Rules

    Remember these important fire safety rules:

    • Kids, tell an adult if you find matches or lighters.

    • Matches and lighters should be stored out of reach of children, in a locked cabinet.

    • Don't play with matches and lighters.

    • Have smoke alarms in or near all bedrooms.

    • Test your smoke alarms every month.

    • Change your smoke alarms' batteries once a year.

    • Have an escape plan and practice, practice, practice.

    • If you must escape through smoke, crawl low under the smoke to your exit.

    • Know your local emergency numbers, and be prepared to dial 911 when necessary.
