Quick Safety Tips

Below are some quick safety tips regarding commonly requested topics, such as smoke alarms, fire extinguishers, CPR, and weather safety.​ Click images for more details.

​​​​​​Smoke Alarms

​​​​​Fire Extinguishers

Be sure to have working smoke alarms in your home:
  • Test all smoke alarms in your home monthly.
  • Change batteries twice a year -- changing batteries on daylight savings is an easy way to remember.
  • Replace smoke alarm units every ten years.
  • Smoke alarms should be placed in all bedrooms, hallways outside living areas, and common areas.
For fire extinguisher operation, remember PASS:​​
  • P - Pull the pin. Pull out the pin that sits in the handle, allowing you to squeeze.
  • A - Aim the nozzle. Aim the black nozzle or hose at the base of the fire.
  • S - Squeeze. Squeeze down on the handle to extract the extinguishing material.
  • S - Sweep. Sweep the nozzle side-to-side across the entirety of the fire.
  • Fire extinguishers should be placed on each level of your home, along with one in the garage, where they can be easily accessible.​


​​​​Emergency Preparedness

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) on unresponsive persons:
  • Shake and shout: make sure the person is u​nconscious without a pulse. Call 9-1-1.
  • If necessary, lay person flat onto floor -​- off of beds or chairs.
  • Place hands in the center of the chest, one palm on top of the other hand.
  • Push hard and fast continuously, about two compressions per second.
  • Do not stop compressions until medical help arrives, or unless the person regains a pulse or starts breathing on their own.
Be ready for all of North Texas' extremes:
  • Be informed. Know the types of hazards the North Texas area can experience - thunderstorms, tornadoes, winter storms, and home fires are the most common. 
  • Get a kit. Create an emergency kit that has essential items you and your family would need in case of extended sheltering or evacuation.
  • Make a plan. Know what to do when an emergency happens and how to get important information.
