Closing your door at night will help keep you safe from fire and smoke.


A closed door is a powerful tool that can do so many things, like:


  1. Stop a fire from growing and spreading

  2. Help keep smoke and heat out

  3. Help keep your home (and all your stuff) safe

  4. Keep the temperature down

  5. Save your life


Most people don't know the difference a closed door makes in a fire. You can change that.


Join the "Close Before You Doze" Campaign

In case of fire, a closed door can isolate the fire's flow, reduce room temperature and keep carbon monoxide levels down.  "Close Before You Doze" aims to make closing doors at night part of people's bedtime routine. 

Take the Pledge!  To join the Closed Door Crew and for more information go to the Close Our Door website.
