Fire Safety Tips for Families

6/8/2020 (Permalink)

call SERVPRO of Albany and Americus at (229) 439-2048 Teach your children about fire safety and have a plan ready in case of an emergency.

According to the National Fire Prevention Association, 49,300 fires are caused each year by playing with fire, most of these by children. It's especially important to teach fire safety tips to kids in part to prevent fires from happening and in part so that if an accident does occur, your children will know how to protect themselves. Here's how you can teach your kids to be safe.

  1. Don't play with matches or lighters (This is probably the most important and common fire safety tip for kids.)
  2. Run extinguished matches under water before discarding
  3. Never leave candles or incense burning when leaving a room
  4. Don't over-plug a single outlet
  5. Don't play near fireplaces or stoves
  6. Keep flammable objects away from the stove
  7. Develop and practice an escape plan
  8. Get low, get out
  9. Stop, drop, and roll
  10. Never hide in closets or under beds
  11. Leave your belongings
  12. Don't use the elevator
  13. Once in a safe place, call 911
  14. (For parents) Fireproof your home
  15. (For parents) Talk to your kids about fire safety

If your home or office has been damaged by a fire call us at SERVPRO of Albany and Americus at (229) 439- 2048.
