Fire Safety Tips for Seniors

Getting older brings both wisdom and challenges, but ensuring a safe home is a priority. Here are five easy steps for seniors to stay protected from fire hazards:


  1. Practice the Plan: Know your fire safety plan well. Regularly practice evacuation drills with everyone at home to be well-prepared in case of an emergency.

  2. Sleep on the First Floor: Consider sleeping on the first floor for easier evacuation. It's a simple adjustment that can make a big difference.

  3. Keep Essentials Close: Have important items like a flashlight, phone, and medications within easy reach by your bedside. Quick access is crucial during emergencies.

  4. Check Doors & Windows: Ensure doors and windows open smoothly. This small maintenance step ensures easy exits during a fire.

  5. Install Linked Alarms: Invest in interconnected smoke alarms. If one goes off, all alarms sound, providing early and widespread notification for a safer evacuation.                                                                                                        Install-Linked-Alarms
