Check your electronics
- Electrical malfunctions is also a top causes of home fires. Hire a qualified electrician to make any major installations or changes in your home.

Watch your electrical cords- Be sure to check your electrical cords regularly, and check that it does not run across doorways or under carpets that can lead to damage. Limit the number of plugs you have in an electrical outlet or power strip. Overloading an electrical outlet may not only trip a breaker, it could also start a fire.

Avoid using portable and/or fixed space heaters –Heating equipment is the second leading cause of home fire deaths.

Involve the kids– It’s never to early to teach fire safety habits to the young members of your family. Do not let your keiki (children) play with matches, lighters or candles and be sure to keep these items high up and away from the younger kids. Inform children that if a doorknob is hot, they should NOT open the door.
And show them how to crawl on their hands and knees if they see smoke.
