A few simple tips can protect your home and your family.  

1. Keep Open Paths

Make sure you keep open spaces throughout all areas of your home, so you’re able to move around and escaped in the event of a fire or other emergency. You want to eliminate any possible issues that could slow down the ability of you and your family to get out of your home. Leave space in between your furniture, so you’re able to move around it without any hesitation.  

2. Declutter

Clutter isn’t just unsightly. It’s a huge fire hazard, especially if you have clutter near registers or heaters. Keep in mind, if you have rooms filled with your possessions, especially if it’s stacked, and your home should happen to catch flame, rooms filled with clutter burn quicker and typically hotter. 

3. Fireplace Decorating

While fireplaces provide your home with warmth and give the room a certain ambiance, they’re also fire hazards. When you decorate the mantel, always make sure anything you place there is sturdy and won’t move. Avoid draping anything from the mantel. 

4. Pet and Baby Proof

It’s important to keep candles where kids and pets can’t reach. Always use plug protectors to avoid your child sticking anything in them.
