Annual Home Fire Inspection

The December holiday season often leads to a spike in the number of fires reported in the U.S. According to statistics by the National Fire Protection Association, an estimated 190,000 fires were reported during the holiday season in November 2017 alone.

Know the Basic Safety Measures

Fire safety should be a top priority in every home. One of the best ways to prevent a fire from happening in your home is to have an annual fire inspection  .

1. The inspector will also look for any potential fire hazards in your home. This includes things like electrical wiring that is not up to code, or piles of clutter that could easily catch fire.

2. Finally, the inspector will give you a certificate that says your home has been inspected and is safe from fires. This certificate can be helpful if you ever need to make an insurance claim for damages caused by a fire.

Safe Cooking

The kitchen is one of the most common places in the home where fires start.

According to the National Fire Protection Association, cooking equipment is responsible for almost half of all home fires. 

Most cooking fires start when food or other materials catch on fire. To prevent a cooking fire, you should:

-Keep anything that can catch on fire—such as oven mitts, wooden utensils, curtains, and towels—away from your stovetop.

-If you’re simmering, baking, roasting, or boiling food, check it regularly to make sure it isn’t burning. Use a timer to remind you to check.
