Take some simple steps to keep you and your family safe from fire
Be sure smoke alarms are installed throughout your home.
If your smoke alarms run on batteries, or have battery back-up power, replace batteries at least once per year. If the low battery warning beeps, replace the battery immediately. All smoke alarms in your house should be tested once a month using the alarm test button.
Keep fire extinguishers in your home. Be sure to keep a fire extinguisher in high-risk areas such as the kitchen and workshop, and know how to use it.
Know what to do in case of a grease or electrical fire. Use baking soda, or if a pan is on fire, smother the flames with a lid. Never use water to put out a fire on your stove.
If leaking gas starts to burn, do not try to put the flame out. Call 9-1-1 and PG&E immediately. If it is safe to do so, turn off the gas service shutoff valve normally located near the gas meter.
