Bedroom Fire Safety
One of the most common places of origin for a fire to start is the bedroom. If a fire happens to break out in your home, you may have as little as two minutes to get out. These fires tend to be caused by things such as falling asleep while smoking, forgetting to put the candle out, and overloading extension cords and the misuse of space heaters. To avoid bedroom fires always make sure you have a functional smoke alarm that is checked once a month and changed out every 5-10 years. It is also vital that you have a plan of escape which is thoroughly practiced at least twice a year. Just in case a fire does happen to ring out, have a fire extinguisher placed in an area that is quick and easy to get to. Make sure the fire extinguisher is not expired and show everyone in your family a video on how to use and operate a fire extinguisher safely.
