October is Fire Safety Month

Home fire safety

Ensure your home’s fire safety products are in working order and not expired.

Keep yourself and your family safe by being as prepared as possible.

Having smart home essentials like smart fire and carbon monoxide detectors installed can warn you of danger in the home or while you’re away from the home.

🧯 Keeping a fire extinguisher ready and maintained is another great way to ensure you’re prepared if a fire breaks out in your home.

πŸ”₯ Smoke Detectors are typically good for 10 years. However, each manufacturer is different, so it’s best you know what you have and when it expires. Some are hardwired while others are battery-operated or wireless.

πŸ”₯ Fire Extinguishers should be in your kitchen and garage.

πŸ”₯ Make sure the chimney is in good shape before using your wood burning stove. Your insurance may require that it be WETT Certified.

πŸ”₯ Fireplaces with gas ignitors should be off when they are not in use.

πŸ”₯ Gas & electrical fireplaces should be serviced every 1-3 years.
