The second week of October is Fire Prevention Week. What better time than now to make changes around your house to help protect your family.
There are many things you can do to help prevent fires around your house. Adding a smoke alarm or two to your home, and making sure the batteries are fresh, is a simple task. Plus an alarm may lead to a discount on homeowner insurance. This alarm will wake you and your family in case of a fire in the middle of the night.
Additionally, you may want to work with your family to put together an escape plan. This way you know the best way to get out of your home—no matter what room you may be in when an emergency occurs. Finally, check and make sure you do not have any fire dangers, such as a clogged chimney or flammable liquids near the stove.
