Blow out a burning candle before leaving the room, or falling asleep. Never leave a burning candle unattended. Place all burning candles on a solid, non-combustible surface, well away from curtains, open windows and combustible decorations. Make sure your smoke detectors are working. Change the batteries twice a year; when you change your clocks. You may have less than 2 minutes to escape after the detector sounds. Have your escape route planned.
