Fires can happen at any time of the year, but now is the time to make a plan

With the holidays getting closer, it may be a good time to review your emergency fire plans with your family.

Making an Escape Plan

Make sure you and your family can make a home fire escape plan

This includes:

  • Clearing escape paths
  • Establishing a meeting point
  • Mark two ways out of every room (Doors, Windows, etc.)
  • Optional: Create a floor plan

Practicing fire safety

It is important to be mindful of fire safety when putting up holiday decorations. Here are some facts about fire safety:

  • Electrical distribution or lighting equipment was involved in almost half of home Christmas tree fires.

  • More than two of every five (42%) home Christmas tree fires started in the living room. Five percent were chimney or flue fires. One-fifth (21%) of the decoration fires started in the kitchen. Sixteen percent started in the living room, family room or den.

  • Half (51%) of December home decoration fires were started by candles, compared to one-third (32%) in January to November.
