Fires can strike anywhere – in structures, buildings, automobiles, and the outdoors – but fires that affect our homes are often the most tragic and the most preventable. Over 75% percent of all fire fatalities occur in home fires.
This year’s National Fire Prevention Week theme is “Protect Your Family from Fire.” You can protect your family by:
- Installing smoke alarms on every level of your home,
- Testing smoke alarms once a month,
- Changing smoke alarm batteries at least once a year, and
- Making and practicing a home fire escape plan.
Fires can occur in a variety of ways and in any room of your home. But no matter where or how, having a smoke alarm is the first key step towards your family’s safety. A smoke alarm stands guard around the clock and, when it first senses smoke, it sounds a shrill alarm. This often allows a family the precious but limited time it takes to escape.
Properly installed and maintained smoke alarms are considered to be one of the best and least expensive means of providing an early warning of a potentially deadly fire and could reduce the risk of dying from a fire in your home by almost half.
