3 Important Steps to Fire Safety Indoor & Outdoor You Need to Know



Always worth reiterating, smoke alarms are a first line of defense. According to information from The National Fire Protection Association, approximately two thirds of residential fire fatalities are the result of fires in homes without working smoke alarms. Owning and knowing how to use the correct fire extinguisher for specific types of substances is responsible for effectively controlling 80 percent of all fires according to a recent study. Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), emphasizes the importance of to preparing an escape plan that everyone in your home knows, indicating the best escape routes and a safe outdoors meeting place (neighbor's house, mailbox, or stop sign) where everyone will know to meet in the event of an emergency.
