"LOOK. LISTEN. LEARN."
Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere.
"LOOK" for places fire could start. Take a good look around your homes. Identify potential fire hazards and take care of them.
"LISTEN" for the sound of the smoke alarm. You could have only minutes to escape safely once the smoke alarm sounds. Go to your outside meeting place, which should be a safe distance from the home and where everyone should know to meet.
"LEARN" two ways out of every room and make sure all doors and windows leading outside open easily and are free of clutter.
