Staying Fire Safe in Your RV/Motor Home: Part 1

1. Know your location at all times so first responders can find you. In addition, know the numbers for police and fire services in your local region at all times.

2. Have escape routes planned and ensure everyone in your motor home knows them. In addition, make sure everyone knows how to use safety equipment, where it is located, and that all escape avenues (doors, windows, latches, etc.) are functional.

3. Make sure your RV is equipped with a smoke alarm, carbon monoxide alarm, and fire extinguisher.

4. Install a propane leak alarm (check out the full article for location and installation instructions).

5. Check fuel-burning appliances regularly to make sure they're "properly vented, free of any obstructions such as cobwebs, birds nests, etc., and working well."
