Sleeping With Doors Shut is a Good Fire Safety Tip

Sleeping With Doors Shut is a Good Fire Safety Tip

Bedroom doors should be kept closed while sleeping. The doors and walls of your home provide an excellent fire and smoke barrier to protect you in the event of a fire. When possible, remember to close doors to prevent fire and smoke from entering the room.

Check the windows to make sure they unlock and open smoothly to a full open position.

Never smoke in bed.

These simple steps can save your life in the middle of the night.
