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.
