A fire threatens a home and family every 57 seconds. A Fire Detection and/or Smoke Warning system could save your life. No matter how careful you are, all fire authorities agree that it is not possible to prevent all fires. There are ways, however, that you can lessen the danger and provide the most precautions possible, beginning with these basic rules:
– Don’t overload your electrical circuits. This is one of the foremost cause of fires.
– Keep matches and lighters out of reach of children.
– Don’t smoke in bed.
– Don’t accumulate oil or grease-soaked rags.
– Keep combustibles far from heat sources.
Contrary to popular belief, the smell of smoke will not wake you. As a matter of fact, the poisonous gases actually put you into a deeper sleep. For this reason, it is essential that you have the appropriate warning system in effect to alert you and your family, should a fire break out in the middle of the night.
