Fire Safety in Your New Home

A home is one of the biggest investments you’re going to make in your lifetime, that’s why you need to protect your property at all costs. Rarely is there an owner who would feel his or her home is threatened by fire or flood, but disaster can strike when least expected. Here are some tips to keep your family, possessions, and precious memories safe in your new home.

Smoke alarms

When buying a new home, it’s important to highlight the presence of smoke alarms. Depending on the size of your planned purchase, consider installing a smoke alarm inside and outside every bedroom, and have them tested for reliability.

Fire Extinguishers

Different types of home fire extinguishers are available in the market, with each type serving a different purpose. It is extremely important to purchase the correct fire extinguishers that will cover the major corners of your home. Consult a fire safety service provider for this particular task.

Escape Routes

Work with your family members to develop a plan of escape in case of fire. Make sure to practice this plan. If you have plans on moving into a condo, instead, be sure you know where the fire escape routes are, and get your family to understand how to evacuate from your floor safely.
