Identifying Fire Hazards in Your Home

A home fire can occur in as little as two minutes. Identifying fire hazards in your home is a great way to help prevent fires from occurring.

  • Whenever possible, unplug your electronics when not in use.
  • Try to ensure that your appliances have their own outlets and use extension cords to reach more distant outlets.
  • In the kitchen, check if your towel racks, paper towel dispensers or curtains are sitting too close to any cooking equipment.
  • If your microwave isn't built in, make sure that it is clear of clutter and its vents are not obstructed.
  • Always keep anything that gives off heat at least 3 feet away from flammable materials or items.
  • Do not plug more than one heating appliance into an outlet.
  • Don't leave candles burning or heating appliances plugged in while you're asleep or when you leave your home.
  • For laundry appliances, clean out the lint screen on your dryer every time you use it.
  • Check for old magazines or newspapers in the attic. If stored in damp, warm places, these can self-combust even if not close to a heat source!
  • Keep any gasoline or other flammable liquids at home tightly sealed in metal containers and make sure they are far away from heat sources such as gas or charcoal grills.
  • Keep your grill least 10 feet from your home and placed away from any overhead branches or structures.
