Question

What is the best way to keep my family safe from a home fire?

Answer

One of the most important steps you can take to protect your family against fire is to install smoke alarms and keep them in good working order. You can buy smoke alarms at most home and hardware stores, and they often cost $10 or less. You can also create an escape plan and designate a meeting place in case a fire should occur.
