The Importance of Fire Safety Awareness

Being aware of fire safety issues can help you create a safer and more secure living environment for you and your family. It’s important to be aware of these potential fire hazards and find ways to lessen the risks in your home or workplace.

Hazards in the Kitchen- Never leave the stove unattended when cooking, particularly when deep frying. Cooking fires are among the top if not the number 1 cause of home fires. Open flames from the stove and intense oven heat can easily get out of hand.

Electronics and Outlets
– Inspect your appliances to make sure that each is on its own outlet as much as possible. For electronics, unplug them when they’re not in use and avoid running extension cords under rugs.

Faulty wiring - Homes with faulty wiring can cause fires, some red flags include lights dim if you use another appliance, frequently blown fuses or tripped circuits. If any of these occur in your home, it’s best to have a licensed electrician come and inspect you house

Overused Appliances–Faulty or over-used appliances can easily cause a fire with just a few sparks. Heating systems, especially space heaters and wood stoves, can ignite household items nearby. Be sure to let an electrician install any new electrical system.

- Leaving a lit candle unattended can quickly lead to a house fire. Flammable items left near a candle can also easily catch fire. Reduce this risk by trimming the wick of your or just use battery operated candles.

Smoking- Lit cigarettes that accidentally drop on household items can quickly escalate into a large home fire so it’s highly recommended to avoid smoking indoors.
