Health Tip of the Day

When Traveling, Be Prepared for Fire

Hotel and motel fires can be fatal. To protect yourself, follow these tips from the National Fire Protection Association: When checking in, ask what the fire alarm sounds like and if there's also a voice alert. At night, put your room key on the nightstand so you can find it easily. If a fire breaks out, take the stairs. Find the exit closest to your room.
