Fire Prevention Steps for Your Southside Home
Having a Fire Safety and Escape Plan in Place is Crucial
Once your home has caught on fire, did you realize you may have only about two minutes to get out safely? An early warning from a smoke detector in proper working order during a fire and a fire escape plan which has been regularly practiced can save the lives of you and your family. After the fire, you may be disorientated and distraught, but at SERVPRO, we understand that and want to help put your life back together by cleaning up the mess and repairing the damages.
Preventing a fire at all costs in your Southside home is imperative. Our team at SERVPRO is quite experienced, highly trained, and ready to tackle whatever challenge is at hand. Our strategies and state of the art equipment for fire damage remediation are unmatched. The lasting damage of a fire, however, can still cause problems for you and your family. To prevent such events, ensure that you have the following taken care of:
Make sure smoke detectors are installed in your home and working properly. You can have earlier warning of fire because of these devices, and can even help you put a fire out before it gets out of control. It is the most important step in preventing fires.
Fire extinguishers should be within reach at all times. If things get bad, this ensures you are prepared to fight it and help you to get away from the fire safely.
Test, Test, Test
Your smoke alarms need to be tested each month. If they are not working properly, change the batteries right away.
Create an escape plan in case of an emergency and go over it with the whole family. Ensure that everyone understands it and that you have a safe spot where you can meet up once everyone gets out of the home, so you know that everyone is accounted for.
