Fire Safety Tools To Have In Your Home
Fire Safety Tools to Have in Your Home
In the event of a fire, here are a few tools and supplies that you should have on hand in your home.
The right smoke detector – It is important to have the right smoke detector in your home. The most common smoke detectors have an alarming rate of failure and can take as much as 30 minutes to activate.
Hero Fire Protection recommends using a photoelectric smoke alarm such as the OmniShield state-of-the-art smoke sensor because it will go off when black smoke is detected. Designed and engineered in the United States, OmniShield incorporates Texas Instruments micro-processors and RF modules to give your home a private network of wireless sensors, so if there is danger in one room, you are alerted in every room of the home.

Fire extinguisher - fire extinguishers can help in the early stages of a fire if you know how to operate it and are in a safe location to use them. It is important for every household to have at least one fire extinguisher at home or better yet, one in every room.
Fireproof lock box – To keep your essential documents safe, consider investing in a fireproof lock box. Keep important items such as passports, birth and marriage certificates, social security cards and other documents in here to prevent loss and damage in the event of a fire.
