  • Smoke detectors are an essential investment that can protect homes against fire. With smoke alarms, homeowners get alerted when there is a fire in the home, enabling them to take quick measures, such as calling for urgent help from emergency responders to prevent fire outbreaks.

    Homeowners need to install smoke alarms on every floor in their home and outside every bedroom. Interconnected alarms are the best option because they communicate with each other when there is a fire danger.

Creating a fire escape plan is the best way to avoid getting caught in a dangerous situation without knowing what to do.

Every homeowner should create a plan that includes fire safety tips and fire safety rules. This will help homes during an emergency. With a proper plan, homes will have a fire escape strategy and evacuate every family member in time to a safe place. Every house should have at least two or three escape routes, and all family members should be informed and reminded about the escape routes.
