Fire safety measure include those that are intended to prevent ignition of an uncontrolled fire and those that are used to limit the development and effects after a fire has started.

Having properly installed and maintained home fire sprinklers can reduce the heat, flames, and smoke produced in a fire. Portable fire extinguishers can save lives and property by putting out small fires or at least containing them until help can arrive. Carbon monoxided (CO) alarms should be placed in your home with at least one fuel burning appliance/heater, attached garage, or fireplace to detect this odorless, colorless gas that is often refured to as the invisible killer.
