October is National Fire Safety Month
Tips for National Fire Safety Month
Here are a few steps you can take to promote fire safety in your home:
- Keep at least one fire extinguisher on each floor of your home for the best safety practices.
- Keep exit doors totally accessible! Make sure they’re not obstructed, propped shut or locked.
- Makes sure to turn off or unplug appliances, electronics, and especially cookware when not needed. These items are known to cause 1 in every 4 fires.
- Establish an evacuation plan. Make sure to convey the seriousness of a preparedness drill and practice!
