Home Fire Safety is Still Important!

In the midst of one of the worst pandemics in history, it’s easy to forget other important safety tasks that could save your life. One that comes to mind is fire safety in the home. According to the United States Fire Administration, the risk of dying in reported home structure fires is 55% lower in homes with working smoke alarms than in homes with no alarms or none that worked.

You should have at least one smoke alarm installed on each level of your home, preferably near sleeping areas. Test the alarms regularly and change the batteries twice per year. Also, have a fire escape plan and practice it regularly. For more fire safety information, contact your local fire department.
