Always a Good Time to Check your Batteries
Fire Prevention Month is coming up in October, but it's ALWAYS a good time to examine emergency preparedness plans for your home and business, including your fire escape plan.
Do you have a fire escape plan? Have you changed your smoke alarm batteries within the last year?
The NFPA recommends installing smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each separate sleeping area, and on every level of your home, including the basement. Did you know that roughly half of home fire deaths result from fires reported between 11 p.m. and 7 a.m., when most people are asleep? Smoke alarms save lives. In fact, having a working smoke alarm cuts the chances of dying in a reported fire in half!
Stay safe and prepare now to ensure you are ready for any disaster.
