Home is a dwelling place and used to be a permanent or temporary shelter of a family, individual or a group of families. Prevention saves lives. Homeowners should coordinate with their local fire department to identify their house if high risk in terms of fire accident and to be aware of fire safety ways. Inform your children not to hide under a bed or in a closet in case of a fire and teach them how to escape. Choose a nearby and safe place from your home where everyone will meet in the event of a fire. This will help determine if anyone else is still inside the home. Never return to a burning home or building for any reason.
Home safety ways to prevent fire threat:
> Install smoke alarms. It reduces fire related injuries and deaths.
> Practice safe cooking. When cooking your food in the kitchen never leave it unattended.
> Use turkey fryers outdoors. Never use a wooden deck or in a garage.
> Store flammable items, like oil, gasoline, paints, propane and varnishes, away from any potential heat sources including direct sunlight or in a shed away from your home.
> Never use a generator inside an enclosed space, like a garage, or even with the door open because the carbon monoxide could accumulate that will result a fire damage.
> Unplug any charging devices like phone before going to bed.
> Unplug the appliances after use. Pull the plug and not the cord to avoid damage to the cord.
> Never wrap or bundle electric cords together. This prevents the heat from dissipating leading to a fire hazard.
