The holidays bring some much-needed relaxation time with the family but can also bring some great opportunities to get the household up to speed on safety habits. Identifying ‘What to do in the event of a fire?’ can prove a useful exercise before the holiday break.
Where do you start?
Ensure smoke alarms, fire extinguishers and fire blankets are supplied or installed in correct and easy to access areas. Make sure all smoke alarms are serviced and in the best condition as they are your first warning against fire risk.
Test your knowledge. Have a family activity to identify and observe at risk areas in your home. This gives kids the chance to observe hazards and understand what to look out for. This is an important part of your fire emergency plan.
Now set a plan of attack. Plan your annual smoke alarm maintenance along side your household emergency plan. Have an accessible house plan identifying alarm positioning and exit paths for home.
Fire emergencies are not planned, so ensuring all members of your family are informed of what to do during an incident creates less time to worry and more time enjoying the holidays with your loved ones.
