Fire Safety: 6 Tips

Fire Safety TipsHey Everyone!  Fire safety is crazy important and this time of year it is important to make sure you and your family are safe from fires and have a plan in case of one!   When I was two, our house burned down.  We all got out safely, but it could have been so much worse!  Here are some tips and such to help you stay prepared!

  • Have an escape plan!  Draw up a ‘map’ of your home and talk to your kids about how to get out if there is a fire and where to meet up.
  • Check your smoke detectors on a regular basis.  Have a day of the month where you go through and check them.  It doesn’t take long and you’ll appreciate it!
  • Make sure you have insurance!  Even if you are renting there are plans to protect you family in case of a fire!  No one wants to start from scratch!
  • Never leave candles unattended!!!
  • Get a fire extinguisher and know how to use it!  If you have older children, teach them as well! The small ones are around $20.  Just remember, it’s an investment!
  • Be mindful of the stove/oven.  Be sure not to leave anything unattended.  I’m gonna be honest and say I’m guilty of this one, so now I try to find something to do when baking to keep me close by.  Sometimes, I sit on the counter and read.  😀  If you can’t do that, then at the very least set some timers so that you don’t run off and forget it!

    These are all great tips. We have smoke alarms and a fire extinguisher. I am very careful with candles or anything that could possibly start a fire.

    I just moved into my first house, and I want to keep it safe from fires. Thanks for explaining that I will want to get a fire extinguisher. I also, liked that you pointed out that I should learn how to use it as well. That does seem smart because I wouldn’t want to not know how to use it when there is a fire.
