Along with safety precautions we’ll take on the road and in-flight, let’s also keep safety in mind once we reach our destination. If you plan to stay at a hotel/motel, choose one that’s protected by both smoke alarms and a fire sprinkler system. When you check in, ask the front desk what the fire alarm sounds like. When you enter the room, review the posted escape plan. For those of you planning to stay in hotel/motel accommodations that include kitchenettes, the same cooking safety tips apply as those used at home. Check out NFPA’s cooking safety information and tip sheet as well as the hotel safety tips page and hotel safety tips sheet on the NFPA website to help you keep your vacation safe and enjoyable.
