Know Your Evacuation Zone
- During a storm you may have to evacuate quickly, learn your evacuation routes, practice with household, pets and identify where you will go.
- Follow the instructions from local authorities. They will provide the latest recommendations based on the threat to your community and appropriate safety measures.
Extreme Wind Warning
Extreme wind can cause a lot of damage to people and properties. If you get this alert while driving, make sure to:
Pull aside, stay alive. Move to the road's shoulder, turn on the car's hazard lights, and stay in the car
Be cautious if driving in or near high-profile vehicles, which may be pushed by wind.
Preventing a Fire Loss
Smoke detectors are an essential investment that can protect homes against fire. With smoke alarms, homeowners get alerted when there is a fire in the home, enabling them to take quick measures, such as calling for urgent help from emergency responders to prevent fire outbreaks.
Homeowners need to install smoke alarms on every floor in their home and outside every bedroom. Interconnected alarms are the best option because they communicate with each other when there is a fire danger.
Fire Safety Plan
Creating a fire escape plan is the best way to avoid getting caught in a dangerous situation without knowing what to do.
Every homeowner should create a plan that includes fire safety tips and fire safety rules. This will help homes during an emergency. With a proper plan, homes will have a fire escape strategy and evacuate every family member in time to a safe place. Every house should have at least two or three escape routes, and all family members should be informed and reminded about the escape routes.
Preventing a Fire Loss
After installing smoke alarms, homeowners need to continue to ensure that the alarms are working properly. It is best to check them for any damage and repair them if the system has any issues.
Homeowners should also create a fire safety checklist and routinely check things like fire alarms to determine whether all fire protection equipment in the home is working effectively. This can prevent avoidable fire outbreaks and keep the home safe in the long run.
Practice Electrical Safety
Most fires in homes occur due to various electrical faults and problems. As such, it is best to ensure electric appliances stay in good condition daily to ensure fire safety in the home.
Homeowners should check for potential hazards and take immediate measures to prevent a fire outbreak. In case of a fire outbreak, homeowners should call their local fire department in order to get the fire under control.
