Be sure your home is equipped with at least one smoke detector. A smoke detector can save the lives of you and your precious family members by alerting you to a possible fire, giving you and your family time to exit your home.
Change the battery in your smoke detectors twice per year. Usually when the time changes from Daylight Saving Time to Standard Time in the fall, and from Standard Time to Daylight Saving Time in the spring serve as a good reminders to replace the battery in your smoke detectors.

Whether indoors or outside, always be mindful of the potential risk of a fire starting unexpectedly. Be aware of burn bans in your area, discard of your smoking materials responsibly, and put out your camp fires completely. Be sure to carry a fire extinguisher with you on camping trips and when you're outside enjoying a fire-pit on a cool evening in your yard. Help keep Arkansas green and beautiful!
Our four-legged friends historically love to take advantage of fire hydrants. However, due to the emergency access required to fire hydrants that may occur any time of the day or night, it is critical that they remain unblocked by vehicles. Don't risk getting a ticket, or having your vehicle towed away. Never park near or block access to a fire hydrant!
