Fire Safety Tips
You may not always be able to prevent fire but here are some tips for Fire Safety:
-Make sure you have smoke alarms on every level of your home. Make sure they are inside bedrooms and outside sleeping areas.
-Test your smoke alarms every month. If they do not work, change the batteries or replace the whole alarm if needed.
-Make an escape plan with your family members. Talk about how everyone will get out and where you will meet once outside. Practice the plan twice a year.
-If you notice any flicking lights or electrical outlets sparking do not use them. Shut the power off to that area of the home and have an electrician come out and check the wires.
-Make sure all small appliances such as toasters, space heaters and even heated blankets are unplugged when not in use.
There are many other things you can do to help prevent fires in your home. Be aware of how your home functions at its best so you will automatically notice if something is out of the ordinary.
