Fire Prevention Tips For The Home.

In the home especially, methods for fire prevention are not talked about often enough for me. The home, like other enclosures, is often prone to fire hazards. Many appliances and materials in the home are not only inflammable, but they can also actually be potential incendiary devices. With the human factor, mistakes or accidents are commonplace in the home hence the need for preventive measures.
The best fire is one that doesn’t happen. With that in mind, here are our top fire prevention tips:
BUY A FIRE EXTINGUISHER.

Every home should have a fire extinguisher which individuals must learn how to use and also enlighten their kids about. Yes, the fire extinguisher works for small fires but it also prevents small fires from turning into big ones. Most importantly, learn the basics of fire safety and how to prevent fires.

KEEP AWAY FROM INCENDIARY DEVICES.
The number one rule for fire prevention is to ALWAYS keep away incendiary devices such as matches, lighters, and other fire hazards out of the reach of children. Keep inflammable items at least three feet away from anything hot. (e.g. fireplaces, space heaters, and ovens).
ONLY SMOKE OUTSIDE.
Always stay in the kitchen while cooking in case something catches fire. Remember to shut off your stove after cooking. Extinguish controlled small fires completely. This includes fires in fireplaces and fire pits.
Helpful fire safety products.
While fire prevention is the most important thing, measures should also be taken for the eventuality of od happening. These fire safety practices can help control fire outbreaks in the home:-
  • Store a fire extinguisher in your kitchen and on each level of your home, near bedrooms.
  • Use a fire-retardant blanket to extinguish a small fire by smothering it before it has a chance to get any bigger.
  • Home Fire Sprinklers: once activated, automatic home fire sprinklers can significantly reduce flames and heat, often long before the fire department can get to your home.
  • Get a fire Escape Ladder: if you live in a building with more than one level, fire escape ladders can help you quickly and safely escape out a window.
  • Designate a place in the house as a muster point- a place safe enough to run to in the case of a fire emergency.
