The time to think about fire prevention safety is always; but especially as the weather starts to cool down and the time to turn on your home heating equipment arrives. Whether you use a home heating unit, some sort of portable device or a wood-burning or gas fireplace, all can lead to fires in the home if not properly installed, maintained, and operated. Implementing fire prevention safety measures can keep you and your family safe.
Did you know … Half of home heating fires are reported during the months of December, January, and February.
According to the National Fire Protection Association, heating is the second leading cause of home fires and home fire injuries, and the third leading cause of home fire deaths.
Use the following list as a fire prevention and home safety checklist.
The National Fire Protection Association reports that:
Smoke alarms are a critical part of fire prevention and safety in the home giving you an early warning so you and your family can get outside quickly.
Be sure to install smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each separate sleeping area, and on every level of your home, including the basement.
No matter the fire safety precautions you put in place, there is always the potential of someone suffering a burn injury. First-degree burns can be extremely painful and third degree can be life threatening. If you or a family member suffers a burn whether from a fire or other hot appliances, you need to seek medical attention immediately.
