title

By Lisa Braxton

A centerpiece of Jewish life, Shabbat is observed every week by families throughout the world. Planning is required for the day of rest and celebration. Fire safety should be an important element of the preparation. The Shabbat Fire Safety tips sheet includes messages on smoke alarms, escape planning and the warming of food.

Particular attention is given to candles and how to use them safely during Shabbat. Details on the effectiveness of home fire sprinklers in suppressing and extinguishing a fire before the fire department arrives are also included. The safety tips sheet can be customized with the fire department’s or an organization’s name and contact information.

All of NFPA’s safety tips sheets can be reviewed on the website.
