Too many people do not take fire safety seriously, simply because they do not think they are at risk. But the U.S. Fire Administration reported that, between 2001 and 2004, 452 people died in fires at homes with smoke detectors. These types of safety measures are extremely important not only for preventing a fire, but also for reacting correctly to a fire situation. By practicing these techniques, families are more likely to survive home fires and escape injury.

The most important part is prevention. Homeowners should keep trees and brush at least 30 feet from their home. Flammable materials such as paint should be kept in separate rooms from fire hazards, like furnaces. These rooms should also have heavy doors that are kept closed in order to contain a fire. Space heaters should be kept at least three feet away from furniture and other flammable objects. Most important is not leaving children unsupervised around fire hazards.

The next important step is detecting fires and reacting to them in the right way. Homeowners should keep several smoke detectors scattered throughout the house, and smoke detector batteries should be changed every six months. Families should also have an emergency plan, including an evacuation plan and a meeting place that is a safe distance from the house. Children should be taught all of these techniques such as stop, drop, and roll, and how to feel for fire on the other side of a door.
