What You Can Do To Protect Your Home and Your Family From Fire

October is Fire Awareness Month and according to the US Fire Administration, at least 80% percent of all fire-related deaths occur in the home. Most importantly, every three hours someone is killed in a home fire. Protecting your family from fire requires both advanced planning and having the proper tools on hand if and when a fire strikes. This includes the use of protective devices, coming up with a home safety plan, taking the proper precautions, and knowing the warning signs. Would you know how to escape from the second floor if a fire breaks out downstairs?  Do your kids know where to meet if there’s a fire? Is your family prepared for the events that will take place once the fire department arrives?
