There is never a bad time to think about safety in your home. Fire departments around the country and in our area have done a great job making a connection between Daylight Savings and the checking of smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors over the last several years. Not all models run on the trusty 9-volt battery, of course, but with Spring Forward coming up in mid March, it is a good time of year to test all alarms, and smoke or carbon monoxide detectors in the home. Furthermore, it is a good opportunity to review your family’s fire escape plan with one another and even practice a few times. Finally, you will want to make sure any fire extinguishers are in proper working order. An emergency is not the best time to find out that your fire suppression equipment is not functional.
Very soon, we will be saying goodbye to what is left of winter and it will be time to enjoy more time outside with our friends and family. Remember that fire safety is not just for inside the home. For those of you who grill, barbecue and even fry food outdoors, it is important to know that there are important safety measures which apply to outdoor cooking as well!
