Ahead of the Flame
Home and business fires can be a difficult and life changing event to deal with. Irreplaceable items may be lost forever within a matter of minutes. The first and most important step to avoid these situations is to prevent them from happening at all. Not all fires are foreseeable but there are a few helpful steps to take to avoid disaster. Always test your smoke detectors and have them placed in a pathway that leads to an exit. Inspect your source of heat and be sure it is up to code. Keep laundry lint traps cleared and have your ducts cleaned periodically to prevent dryer fires. Never leave a candle burning without a proper base beneath it and never leave it unattended. Maintain your cords and never over use an outlet. These simple and effective steps can help keep your family safe.
