Home Fire Safety Checklist
The National Fire Protection Association reports that in 2013, there were 369,500 residential house fires in the United States. This number is down from 10 years ago and is lower than the 458,000 fires that occurred in 1993. With increasing fire risk awareness and advanced technologies for flame retardant materials, home fire safety has improved, but we can make it even better.
In order to prevent fires in your home, make sure to follow the expert tips below:
Replace smoke alarms every 10 years or as needed
o Make sure there are no frays or tears in any of your cords
o Make sure everyone knows where to go in the event of an emergency
Fire Safety Checklist for Businesses
Commercial properties and businesses are not immune to fire hazards, in fact, there are often more hazards at a business than in your home. It's essential to have a Fire Safety Plan for your business. The plan, including escape routes, needs to be posted so all employees are aware of the plan. Employees must know that fire safety is everyone's responsibility and be encouraged to recognize and report any fire hazards that they may see during their day/shift.
Follow the safety tips for business below:
o Make sure employees have basic understanding of how fire extinguishers work
o Review exit plans with employees
Building/business address must be visible and easy to see for firefighters and rescue team
