Fire safety tips Apartment fire loss

According to the National Fire Protection Association, firefighters respond to a home fire every 79 seconds.

Simple steps can be taken throughout the home to reduce the risk of fire and injury/loss of life:

Working smoke alarms should be found in each bedroom, outside each sleeping area, and on every level of the building are working properly and the batteries are good?

Be sure fire extinguishers are available on every level of the home and that each household member knows how to use them?

Reduce the risk of fire outside of the home by removing dying or dead trees and shrubs and by keeping dry brush and debris at least 30 feet away from the home.

Keep gutters, roof, and eaves clear of debris? Be sure any candles in the home are placed away from curtains and other furniture, as well as out of reach of children and pets.

Consider using safer alternatives such as flameless candles.
