October Fire Safety Tips

National Fire Prevention Week took place from October 6th-12th. Although it is behind us, the lessons we can learn from it are still very important. Here are five fire prevention tips for you to keep in mind.

  1. Leave at least a three-foot safe space from space heaters and anything else in the room and never leave them unattended.
  2. Check electrical cords to make sure they are not fraying or have exposed wiring.
  3. The National Fire Safety Protection Association says that almost half of all fires are caused by cooking. An unattended stove is one of the main reasons.
  4. Use and test your smoke detectors.
  5. Keep candles at least a foot away from anything else that is flammable. Better yet, use LED candles.
