Household Safety Tips


Safety Drills

Before an emergency occurs, practice getting your family out of the house safely:

  • Plan what you’re going to do.
  • Practice the drill in the daylight.
  • Move slowly and carefully.
  • Don’t turn lights on or off.
  • Don’t light matches or cigarette lighters.
  • Don’t use a flashlight or telephone (even a cell phone) because an electric arc might ignite the gas.
  • Leave doors open to ventilate the house or apartment after you are out.
