Make sure that your smoke detectors are working properly and replace the batteries if necessary. Smoke detectors are essential in alerting you and your family to a fire and giving you enough time to evacuate safely.

Be Careful With Outdoor Activities

Spring is a great time to enjoy outdoor activities like grilling and campfires, but these activities also come with a risk of fire. Keep a safe distance from flammable materials and make sure that the fire is completely extinguished before leaving. This is definitely important if you have a natural or bio-ethanol fireplace.

Clean Your Dryer Vents

Spring cleaning is an excellent time to clean out your dryer vents. Lint buildup in dryer vents is a leading cause of house fires, so make sure that you clean out the lint from the vent and the surrounding area.

Store Flammable Materials Safely
