    Home Safety Checklist

    Sound the Alarm: Install smoke detectors on every floor of your home and carbon monoxide detectors near sleeping areas. Don’t forget routine testing!

    Avoid Overload: Check for overloaded extension cords – usage should not exceed the recommended wattage.

    Don’t Get Tippy: If young children are in the home, bookshelves and other furniture should be firmly secured with wall brackets to prevent tipping.

    Watch Cord Placement: Extension cords should not be placed under rugs or heavy furniture, tacked up or coiled while in use.

    Get Grounded: All major appliances should be grounded. Be sure to check your ground fault circuit interrupters regularly.

    Plan Your Escape: Prepare and practice a fire escape plan with your family. Identify exits for every room and know what to do with young children.

    Keep Extinguishers Handy: Place all-purpose fire extinguishers in key locations in your home – the kitchen, bedroom and garage. Be sure to check expiration dates regularly and know how to use them safely.
