You fall asleep with a lit candle and wake up to the smell of burning fumes and smoke filling the room. A fire can spread quickly — from practically nothing to a blaze throughout your entire home within minutes. Your belongings are replaceable (for the most part), but you and your family’s lives are not. That’s why it’s critical to have an escape plan along with a fire prevention plan.
Would you rather spend a little money on a fire extinguisher or spend a lot of time in a hotel and have all of your possessions burned? Probably the former, right? We can all be stingy at times, but the safety of our family is not an area to penny-pinch. Do yourself a favor and equip your home with the appropriate number of fire extinguishers. You’ll regret it if you don’t and a fire erupts in your home.
Beep, beep, beep! You wake up in the middle of the night from the fire alarm and everyone is in their bedrooms. You open the door to the hallway and see huge flames that make it impossible for you to escape through your front door or for you to reach your sleeping children.Fear sets in. Do they know what to do? Can everyone reach safety on their own? We know this is scary to think about, but what if it happened to you? Is your family prepared in case of a fire emergency?
