Keeping your home safe from a fire sounds like a pretty important priority, right? It’s not exactly a situation anyone wants to find themselves in, and there are many ways to keep yourself safe and prevent that from ever happening. Here are some tips for keeping your home fire-free.
- A working smoke alarm is 100 percent more efficient than a nonworking one. With that in mind, check your alarms regularly and change the batteries often as needed.
- In case of a fire, have a plan in place for escaping the fire.
- Don’t ever leave candles unattended or go to sleep with candles still lit.
- Be careful in the kitchen. Don’t walk away from the lit oven or stove, and don’t put flammable objects near either.
