Fire Protection

Install smoke and carbon monoxide detectors on every level of your home, especially near sleeping areas.  If you already have detectors, test them, and replace the batteries annually.

Keep a fully charged, Type K, fire extinguisher in your kitchen.  NEVER use water to attempt to put out an oil or grease kitchen fire.

Do not use a gas fireplace with a missing or broken glass panel.
