FIRE & RESCUE
The best ways to do this are to:
prevent fires from starting;
maintain working smoke alarms on every storey of your home and outside all sleeping areas to have as much time to safely escape as possible. Not only do smoke alarms save lives, they are required by law;
plan and practice a home fire escape plan so everyone in the home knows exactly what to do should the smoke alarms sound in an emergency; and
consider installing residential sprinklers when building a new home or doing extensive renovations.
