Home Fire Safety
Having you checked your smoke alarms recently? If you are somebody who has never experienced a house fire, it is easy to forget that smoke alarms should be checked on a regular basis. It is suggested that smoke alarms be tested every month and replaced every 10 years. Make sure that there is a smoke alarm in every bedroom and outside sleeping areas. If a fire occurs, it is very important that everybody in the house knows what the alarms sound like and what they should do. Be sure to inform children that it is very important that the first thing they do is get outside and stay outside. The lack of a plan can easily result in panic and confusion which can lead to a dangerous situation. Ensure the safety of your family by investing the time and money in protecting them should a house fire occur.
