RV Fire Safety

Smoke Alarms

Install a UL-approved smoke alarm designed for recreational vehicles.

Test your smoke alarm once a week during use.

Plan and practice an escape plan.


Fire Extinguishers

Install a five-pound ABC rated fire extinguisher near each exit and know how to use it.


Carbon Monoxide (CO) Detectors

Install a UL approved carbon monoxide detector.


If You Smell Gas

Extinguish all open flames (pilot lights, lamps, smoking materials, etc.)

Do not operate electrical switches. Turning a switch on or off can create a spark that may cause an explosion.

Shut off gas supply.

Leave the unit until odor is gone.

Have the gas system checked and repaired before using again.


Cooking Appliances

It is not safe to use cooking appliances for comfort heating. Cooking appliances need fresh air flow for safe operation. Unlike homes, the amount of oxygen supply is limited due to the size of the RV. Proper ventilation when using the cooking appliances will reduce the danger of asphyxiation.

Before operation of your stove or oven, open overhead venting or turn on exhaust fan. Open a window


Vehicle Maintenance

Repair any engine or transmission oil leaks as soon as possible, especially on an automatic transmission since transmission fluid is highly flammable. It will ignite easily and burn with great rapidity.

Transmission fluid also ignites when it comes in contact with the exhaust system. The exhaust system becomes hotter when traveling up hills causing the leaking transmission fluid to more easily ignite.
