Fire Safety in The Home: Part One

 

fire safety

House fires can be treacherous, here are some great tips for your home.

There are many fire hazards that surround us every day. This isn’t meant to alarm, but to help keep you aware. Today we’re going to be talking about how you can combat these with excellent fire safety tips! Are you ready to get started? Let’s take a look.

Hope for the best, plan for the worst.

There are many people who never suffer the damage of a house fire, but everyone should have a plan for what to do if disaster strikes. Make sure that you and your family know exactly how to escape and what to do if there is a fire in the home. The biggest tip is to get out, stay out, and to call for help. No matter how much you love your laptop, it’s not worth your life.

Keep your smoke detectors working.

Without smoke detectors, your home is at risk for a surprise disaster, which is considerably worse than one you are prepared for. Test your smoke detectors once a month and make sure they have fresh batteries when they stop working. The beeping sound they make can be annoying when you don’t want it, but it will also save your life.

Don’t light fires inside.

Never ever start a grill in a basement or in an enclosed space like a sunroom. Grills are only meant to be outside where the smoke can dissipate. Furthermore, smokers should avoid smoking inside the house. Not only will it damage the walls of your home, but they also are the starters of many house fires in the country. Falling asleep with a forgotten cigarette is much more common than you would think. Avoid this issue entirely by smoking outdoors or quitting altogether.
