Fires can have a devastating effect on your home or property. Regardless of the size or scope of the fire, it can lead to significant damage. Here are some tips to help prevent fire.

When cooking:

  • Stay in the kitchen whenever something is frying, grilling or boiling.
  • Keep flammable objects at least 3 feet away from the stove top

When heating your home:

  • Never leave a space heater or a fireplace unattended. Make sure to turn off space heaters and extinguish all embers before leaving rooms.

Other leading home fire risks:

  • Switch to flameless candles
  • Electrical equipment is the third major cause of home fires and the leading cause of property damage.

How to make a fire escape plan:

  • Have at least 2 exits of each room
  • Establish a designated meeting area outside safe from the building.

Preventing fires at home is important year-round, but Fire Prevention Month serves as a great reminder that simple steps can make a big difference in keeping your family safe.
