Proactive Measures You Can Take to Keep Your Family & Home Safe
While we take great pride in our ability to help those who work with us to restore and repair their homes to their previous glory pre-accident we pride ourselves in helping our community avoid accidents in the first place through education. Below is our guide to proactive measures and common steps people can take to safeguard their homes and mitigate the risk of fire:
Install and Maintain Smoke Alarms
Strategically place smoke alarms on every level of your home, including inside bedrooms and near sleeping areas. Regularly test smoke alarms to ensure they are in working condition, and replace batteries at least once a year. Our pro tip is to change the batteries during daylight savings, either when we “fall back” or “spring ahead”.
Create and Practice a Fire Escape Plan
Develop a comprehensive fire escape plan with all household members, outlining primary and secondary escape routes from each room. Conduct regular fire drills to familiarize everyone with the evacuation procedures and designate a meeting point outside the home. It is better to have a plan prepared and never have to use it than to need to use it and be unprepared.
Keep Flammable Items Away from Heat Sources
Store flammable materials such as paper, cloth, and cleaning supplies away from heat sources like stoves, heaters, and electrical appliances. Avoid placing combustible items near open flames or space heaters to minimize the risk of accidental ignition.
Practice Safe Cooking Habits
Exercise caution while cooking and never leave the kitchen unattended when using the stove or oven. Keep flammable objects, such as kitchen towels and curtains, away from burners, and promptly clean up grease spills to prevent grease fires. Also, ensure that everyone in the family knows how to react to common fires such as grease or oven fires.
Exercise Caution with Candles and Smoking Materials
Use candles in sturdy holders placed on stable surfaces, and never leave them burning unattended. Always extinguish candles before leaving the room or going to bed. For smokers, designate a safe area outdoors for smoking and properly dispose of cigarette butts in fire-safe containers.
Store Fire Extinguishers in Accessible Locations
Keep portable fire extinguishers in easily accessible locations throughout the home, such as the kitchen, garage, and near potential fire hazards. Familiarize yourself with the proper use of fire extinguishers and ensure they are regularly serviced and maintained.
By implementing these proactive measures and fostering a culture of fire safety within the household, homeowners can significantly reduce the risk of fire damage and protect their loved ones and property from harm.
