Fire Prevention

DOL-A-6701

Fire prevention is doable... with effort.   Every home should have: 
  • A proper fire extinguisher rated ABC.  
  • Smoke Alarms (two types Ionization and Photoelectric) install both on each level of your home.
  • Install Carbon Monoxide detectors, again... on each level of your home. 
  • Replace the battery(s) once a year.
  • Replace your smoke alarms as directed... they don't last forever.

Aha! That's what's missing at the new place.. an extinguisher. Thanks. :)

You know what else? A cop reminded me of this recently - a friend, don't worry. I wasn't in trouble. Ha. Anyways, I need to get a rope ladder to keep in our upstairs.

Coming from a fire fighter family and also worked in a past life in fire prevention, we also have a half hour check time when going to bed. The last one of us will just tidy up for half an hour as this is the crucial time when something may catch light. Also, make a date for an anniversary of the house, such as the date you moved in, and on that date change ALL batteries in smoke detectors etc. :-)

Your picture has a decidedly Norman Rockwell quality to it. Very nice.

Did not realized about the two types of fire extinguishers.

Great advice.
Love how the trucks look so different to our fire engines.

Ugh, I flunked...I only have one smoke alarm, and it's 15 years old. Thanks for the reminders Daniel!

Stephanie said...

It's good to be reminded. We often forget these details.

I’m a property manager in Miami. I had a number of fire extinguishers installed by Premier Fire Alarms at the condo that I manage. They were very professional, cleaned up after the installation and also handle the servicing/maintenance. I would recommend them to anyone. Check out their website www.premierfirefl.com or call (954) 797-7692.
