Are You Fire Ready?

Fire is a disaster that can flare up anytime and anywhere. Whether it’s caused by a careless match, a bolt of lightning, or faulty wiring, fire can pose a serious threat to any family. Luckily, you can prepare for fire in any of its forms, and it may not be as difficult as you think. Take a look below at some simple items that can help you keep your cool when the heat comes.

Emergency Kit

Often, a fire near or in your home means that you need to make a quick getaway, and a handy backpack full of survival basics can ease the departure. Consider food, water, first aid, warmth, light, and communication as you assemble your kit.

Smoke Alarms

The NFPA recommends installing smoke alarms in every sleeping room and on every level of your house. Be sure to test each alarm once a month. Plan with your family to know what to do and where to go if a smoke alarm sounds.
