Fire Prevention For Your Home Or Business
As we have learned, flames and smoke can destroy a property within mere minutes, making prevention the only way to significantly deal with a fire.
Installing a working smoke alarm is the best way to survive a dangerous property fire, making it crucial to regularly check your smoke alarms monthly and change out the batteries yearly.
When you are cooking in a kitchen, never leave a flame unattended. Even if you only have to run into another room for a minute, turn off the stove. If you are using a barbecue make sure to keep the grill at least 10 feet away from the structure of the property.
If you notice any frayed wires, then you need to replace them immediately. They can easily cause fires. Do not run them under any carpet or furniture, that way if there is any sparking it will not easily catch.
