Bedroom doors should be kept closed while sleeping. The doors and walls of your home provide an excellent fire and smoke barrier to protect you in the event of a fire. When possible, remember to close doors to prevent fire and smoke from entering the room.
Check the windows to make sure they unlock and open smoothly to a full open position.
Never smoke in bed.
These simple steps can save your life in the middle of the night.
