As you are cleaning out this spring, don’t forget about fire safety.

  • Test your smoke alarms, and replace any alarms that are 10 years old or older.
  • Test your carbon monoxide alarms, and replace any alarms that are 7 years old or older.
  • Check your dryer vents and clean the hosing.
  • Clean clutter inside and outside your home.
  • Check the cords on your appliances. If any are cracked or frayed, repair or replace them.
  • Practice your home fire escape plan.
