Fire Safety Tips
There are several ways to ensure your safety from a house fire. The American Red Cross has data listed on their website at www.redcross.org to help individuals be as prepared as they can be for a house fire.
- Installation of smoke and carbon monoxide detectors are very important and can often be the first alert you can have when a fire starts.
- With any smoke and carbon monoxide detector it is essential to test them once a month to make sure they are operating. Even though sealed detectors are typically good for 10 years, you still need to test them monthly.
- Create a fire escape plan for your family. That way everyone knows where to meet or be found in the event of a fire.
- Install fire extinguishers in rooms where heat sources are prevalent such as kitchens and garages
