Take Precautionary measures to Avoid House Fires A Fire alarm

Is your house properly equipped in case of a fire emergency? No one wants to think about a fire happening to them, but according to the National Fire Protection Association, there are more than 350,000 home structure fires every year. SERVPRO of Henry and Randolph Counties wants your family to stay protected. If a fire happens in your home, several precautions can help you stay safe.

  • First and foremost, you should perform regular safety checks in your home. It’s vital that everyone living in your home knows the location of a fire extinguisher, as well as how to operate it properly. Keep your fire alarm batteries fresh and be sure they are always working. A good rule of thumb is to use a daylight savings time change to prompt you to change your detector’s batteries.
  • Having a planned escape route can make getting out of the home a lot smoother in the event of a fire. Being aware of all possible exits-- and knowing which one to use depending on where the fire is-- can help everyone get out safely. It’s important to plan for pets as well. Designate a family member to help pets safely get out of the home.

Taking precautionary measures for a possible house fire will aid in evacuating the home and the safety of all family members. Should you find your possessions have been damaged due to fire, give SERVPRO of Henry and Randolph Counties a call. The team at SERVPRO offers 24/7 service and will make it “Like it never even happened.”
