How To Develop Fire Protection Habits
How to Develop Fire Protection Habits?
Fire safety starts with developing good habits to keep you and your family safe. Here are a few steps you can take to develop fire protection habits.
Include the whole family in fire safety. Teach everyone in your home, including children on what smoke alarms sound like and what to do when they hear one. Practice escaping from your home at least twice a year.
Teach household members to STOP, DROP and ROLL if their clothes should catch on fire.
Ensure that everyone in your home know at least two ways to escape from every room. Have a family meeting spot outside of your home.
Install the right number of smoke alarms. Test them once a month and replace the batteries at least once a year. 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.

Create a family emergency communications plan and ensure that everyone knows who they should contact if they cannot find one another in the event of a fire. Also, make sure everyone knows how to call 9-1-1.
