Residential Fire Prevention & Safety Guide

Most fire accidents are preventable and time is of essence when it comes to fires at home. In just two short minutes, a fire can become life-threatening. In five minutes, an entire home can be engulfed in flames! With that said, it’s important for residents and families to become familiar with how fire works, the main causes of home fires, and the various methods for fire safety. Fire safety awareness has resulted in a lower number of fire deaths in past years, but the number is still pretty high — especially considering that residential fires are so preventable.

Staying safe from fires at home begins with you. Awareness alone is not enough; proper preventative action is crucial. Save your family from the trouble of having to deal with a fire at home, and a firefighter from risking his life running into your burning residence by taking action.
