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.
