Holiday Safety Tips

The Winston-Salem Fire Department (WSFD) wants everyone to have an enjoyable and safe holiday time. The mission of the Winston-Salem Fire Department and National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is to educate the citizens and communities in Winston-Salem by promoting fire safety and preventive measures to aid in decreasing fires, injuries and non-fire related incidents.

Smoke Alarms

Finally, as in every season of the year, you should have working smoke alarms installed on every level of your home. The smoke alarms should be tested monthly and kept clean. Also, have your smoke alarms equipped with fresh batteries at all times. Know when and how to call for help. Always remember to practice your fire escape plan.
