Home Safety


Fire Prevention For Homes

More than 3,000 people die in home fires each year in the United States; most of whom are in homes without a working smoke alarm. A working, properly installed smoke alarm lowers your chances of dying in a fire. The New Lenox Fire District encourages everyone to practice fire safety by:

  1. Installing and maintaining smoke alarms
  2. Practicing fire escape plans
  3. Performing a home safety walk-through to remove fire hazards from the home
  4. Inspect and test smoke alarms monthly and change alkaline batteries at least once a year, or as instructed by the manufacturer. You can use a date you already know, like your birthday, or when you change your clocks as a reminder
