The following is a list of common causes of house fires, and tips for prevention. The goal is to make you aware of the need for safety in these particular instances.
The importance of your smoke detector may go right over your head. Most deaths by fire occur in homes that either have malfunctioning alarms or no alarm system at all. You should have alarms in every room of your home. Be sure they have working batteries and are checked monthly. You must replace them every 5-10 years depending on your specific smoke detector. Having a working fire alarm could not only reduce the amount of damage done, but could also save your life in the event of a fire.
