Tips For The Whole Family To Practice Summer Fire Safety

  • Teach children the nature of fire - It is FAST, HOT and DANGEROUS!

  • Prepare a home escape plan. Practice fire drills regularly

  • Teach your children the fire department's phone number or 911

  • Always keep matches and lighters away from children. Store them up high or in a locked cabinet and treat them like you would any other dangerous weapon

  • Demonstrate STOP, DROP and ROLL in case clothes catch on fire

  • Make sure your child is supervised at all times, especially around outdoor grills, campfires and fireworks. Most fires are started by children when the child is left alone

  • Never light fireworks indoors or near dry grass and never barbecue in an enclosed area

  • Build campfires where they will not spread, away from dry grass and leaves and downwind from tent - try to keep them small

  • Never leave campfires, fireworks or outdoor grills unattended

  • Make sure you have smoke alarms on every floor and use long-lasting batteries, such as new Advanced Performance Duracell� CopperTop� batteries, for safety all summer long

    To learn more about summer fire safety, join Duracell Canada and the Canadian Association of Fire Chiefs (CAFC) for the Duracell Fire Safety Drive.
