Home Fire Safety Best Practices Part 1
No one plans on an accident or an emergency! If they do occur though, the age-old saying "if you fail to plan then you plan to fail" is so true! If your home caught on fire today, would your family know what to do? If the answer is no, we have some tips to help change that. Everyone in your family should be involved and know what to do in case of an emergency. If you need us, we will be there to help you clean up after a fire, but it is our hope that by implementing some of these fire safety practices in your home, you may not need us!
- Create a fire escape plan and practice the steps.
- Try to identify at least two ways you can exit each room in case there is a fire.
- Regularly replace batteries in your smoke detectors and test them to make sure they are working properly.
- Smoke alarms in the home should be replaced as needed.
- Check your fire extinguisher for corrosion, or any changes in the pressure gauge. It should be in an easily accessible location.
If a fire occurs in your home, the first priority is for you and your family to get out and call for help.
