1. Be alarm ready

Imagine your very own superhero warning you of danger – this is your smoke alarm! Install one on every floor of your home, including the basement, and outside where you snooze. If you close your bedroom door when you sleep, get one in there too! Check these heroes monthly, change their batteries every year and remember, don’t “borrow” their power for other gadgets. And hey, if they’re over 10 years old, consider getting some new sidekicks. For added safety, consider adding an automatic fire sprinkler system to your home.

2. Having an escape plan

In case of a fire, you have to move like a ninja! Sit down with your family and plan your escape route. Make sure everyone knows at least two ways out of every room – even through windows! If you live in an apartment building, hit the stairs, not the elevator. And don’t forget to pick a meeting spot outside. Practice your escape plan at least twice a year; It’s like your own fire drill!

3. Smoking safety

Smoking may be cool, but safety is cool! Careless smoking is a big no-no. If you smoke, use large, deep ashtrays and dip those cigarette butts before throwing them away. Before you hit the hay or leave the house, check under the cushion for any smoked cigarettes. And hey, matches and lighters are like secret tools for adults only. Put them up where little hands can’t reach and teach your kids that these tools are for adults.

4. Kitchen fun without burns

Cooking is great, but let’s keep it safe! Stay close to the kitchen while cooking and make sure it is clutter free. Roll up those sleeves, turn pot handles inward, and declare a “kid-free” zone around your stove. If the grease decides to dance with the fire, cover the pan with a lid and turn off the heat. Leave the lid on until everything cools down.

5. Heater safety dance

Space heaters are like small fireballs. Keep them at least three feet away from anything that can burn, and make sure kids and pets don’t get too close. Turn them off when you leave or go to bed – it’s like putting them to sleep.

6. Electricity wise

Your device also talks to you! If something smells fishy or smokes, quickly unplug it and check it out. Any cords that look tired, and one cord per socket, please replace. No rope under the rug, and let’s not mess with the fuse box. Safety first, remember?

7. Cool a burn

Oh, the burning pain! If you get one, run cold water over it for 10-15 minutes – no ice, and definitely no butter! If it’s serious, don’t be a superhero; See the doctor.

8. Smoke Escapade

If you encounter smoke during your escape, crawl like a ninja! Hands and knees, head down – that’s the way to go. It keeps the air clean there.

9. Stop, drop and roll

Uh-oh, clothes on fire? No need to panic! Stop, get down on the ground, cover your face and roll over and over again. Then cool the burn with water and call for backup. So, there you have it, your guide to becoming a security superstar! Remember, it’s not to be afraid; It’s about getting ready. Stay safe my friend! And one more thing before you go! If your home is unlikely to be damaged by fire, it’s best to have a cleaning hero ready. Approach the fire recovery service Providers, experts in home recovery after a fire.
