Fire Prevention


Home Fire Prevention

Safeguarding against potential fire hazards will significantly reduce the likelihood of a fire affecting your home and family. Make fire safety a priority in your home.

  • Install a smoke alarm on every level of your home and test it monthly.
  • Prevent electrical fires by never overloading circuits or extension cords.
  • Use appliances only as directed by the manufacturer. Unplug appliances when not in use.
  • Keep portable heaters at least three feet away from anything combustible.
  • Keep fire in the fireplace. Use fire screens and have your chimney cleaned annually.
  • Install an affordable home fire safety sprinkler system. In addition to keeping you safe, they can increase property value and lower insurance rates.
  • Plan your escape. Practice your exit strategy from every room in the house.
  • Take the time to educate your children about the dangers of fire.
