Smoke Alarms

8 people die on average every day in a home fire. This is almost 3,000 people every year. This is not a number that can be taken lightly. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has reported that roughly 2/3 of the homes where fires have occurred have had no proper working smoke detectors. This is just not acceptable in today’s world, especially when fire alarm systems are relatively inexpensive to install and maintain.

Smoke Alarm Tips

Fire Escape Plan

Having a fire alarm is inadequate to ensure safety. You must also devise an escape plan and make sure that every member in your home knows about it. First off, make sure that EVERYONE in your home knows what the fire alarm sounds like. It is always a good idea to walk through your home and note all possible exits. Then draw a floor plan and mark at least two ways to exit from every room.

You must also make sure that you decide on an assembly point at a safe distance from your home. This place must be permanent and easy to identify. It must also be a place where emergency services can easily see you. Also make sure that everyone in your home, especially young children, know how to call the emergency services and state the address of your home etc.

Having a fire drill at least twice a year in your home is a good idea. Although we plan these things out, we tend to forget what we have to do in times of emergency.
