Improve Your Home’s Fire Safety This October

Keep Your Home Safe from Fire

October is fire prevention month, and autumn is the perfect time to check a home’s fire safety before you crank up the heat. There are a number of ways you can reduce the chances of a house fire with a few simple renovations and appliance upgrades. Heaters that have been out of commission all year need safety inspections, and if your system is outdated, consider a replacement. There are also smaller improvements that can make a big difference in your home’s fire safety.

Smoke Alarms and Sprinklers

Smoke alarms are extremely important in every home, and they’re also one of the best ways to ensure safety. Keep a smoke alarm on every level of your home, and be sure to inspect them monthly. Consider adding home fire sprinklers, which are not only affordable but add value to your home and keep insurance premiums low.

Safe Electrical Outlets

During the fall and winter months, with holiday decorations, baking, and simply keeping the house heated, homeowners tend to use a lot of electricity. Be safe when using electrical outlets by not overloading extension cords or circuits. You should also unplug appliances when they are not in use, including seasonal items such as space heaters or holiday decorations.

With just a little thought and planning, you can do your part to ensure fire safety and prevent a house fire this winter.
