Home fires occur more often than we’d like, and they can leave a path of destruction in the home and in natural land. The best way to protect yourself and your home against the risk of fire is to prepare and take precautions.

Identify fire hazards and take action as necessary:

  • Keep a fire extinguisher charged and within easy reach, especially to the kitchen and garage.
  • Inspect electrical cords to see if they’re frayed. Ensure that outlets and power strips are not overloaded with electrical items.
  • Check lamps are fitted with the recommended wattage bulb.
  • Have gas furnaces and heat pumps serviced every two years. Oil-fired systems should be checked annually.
  • Test smoke alarms regularly and change batteries at least once a year.
  • Hire a chimney sweep to clean the chimney before stoking up the fireplace.
  • Purchase a fireguard to place over an open fire.
  • Never leave an open flame unattended.
  • Turn space heaters off overnight.
  • Go over a fire escape plan with all the household members so that they know the evacuation route, a meet up point, and contact information for an out-of-state contact should someone get separated from the group.

By reducing the probability of a fire starting, ensuring all house members are aware of a plan of action should a fire occur, and acquiring proper home insurance to cover losses in a fire, your home is on the way to being fully protected!
