NEFSA’s Fire Safety Checklist: Simple Steps, Big Impact



Fire safety is a critical aspect of home and community safety, and the Fire Academy of Northeast (NEFSA) in Dibrugarh has
developed a comprehensive fire safety checklist to help individuals and families stay safe. By following these simple yet
effective steps, you can reduce the risk of fire and protect your loved ones and property. This blog explores NEFSA’s fire
safety checklist and how it can have a big impact on your safety.

  1. Install Smoke Alarms: Ensure that smoke alarms are installed on every level of your home,
    inside each bedroom, and outside sleeping areas. Test them monthly and replace batteries at least once a year.
  2. Create a Fire Escape Plan: Develop a fire escape plan that includes two ways out of every
    room in your home. Practice the plan with all family members at least twice a year.
  3. Keep Fire Extinguishers Handy: Place fire extinguishers in key areas of your home, such as
    the kitchen, garage, and near bedrooms. Ensure that everyone in your household knows how to use them.
  4. Practice Kitchen Safety: Never leave cooking food unattended and keep flammable objects away
    from the stove. Keep a lid nearby to smother small grease fires.
  5. Use Space Heaters Safely: Keep space heaters at least three feet away from anything that can
    burn, and turn them off when you leave the room or go to bed.
  6. Avoid Overloading Electrical Outlets: Use power strips with built-in circuit breakers and avoid
    using extension cords for long-term or permanent wiring needs.
  7. Teach Children Fire Safety: Teach children what smoke alarms sound like and what to do if they
    hear one. Keep matches and lighters out of reach of children.
  8. Secure Your Home: Store matches and lighters out of reach of children, and store flammable liquids
    in approved containers and away from heat sources.
  9. Know How to Escape a Fire: Teach family members to crawl low under smoke and to feel closed
    doors for heat before opening them in the event of a fire.
  10. Stay Informed: Stay informed about fire safety by following NEFSA on social media and attending
    local fire safety events.


NEFSA’s fire safety checklist provides simple yet impactful steps to enhance your home’s fire safety. By following these
guidelines, you can reduce the risk of fire and protect your loved ones and property from harm.
