As we turn the page on another year, many of us are looking for ways to make our homes safer and more secure. One big hazard to be aware of is fire. Here are a few tips to help you stay safe from fire hazards in your home this New Year.
- Have a fire extinguisher available
When it comes to keeping your home safe from fire, don’t skimp on the basics. A fire extinguisher can help you put out any pesky flames before they spread and cause more damage or hurt people with smoke inhalation symptoms that may not be reversible!
2. Keep holiday candles from any combustible objects
Keep the candles safe by moving them away from anything that can burn, like glass or paper products.
If you’re going to use them in your home make sure they don’t get too close together because if there is ever one spark it’ll spread quickly through an open container of volatile liquid – which means serious consequences!
3. Don’t leave your fire disregarded
When you leave a fire unattended, there’s the risk of it getting out of control.
The best way is prevention! Make sure that anything flammable has been put away before leaving so nothing can be picked up by accident (especially if children are around). Be careful about where things like candles end up because they also pose their own risks; don’t let them get too close in either direction from any source that might produce sparks – including fireplace lips!
4. Utilize outside lights responsibly
You can bring the Christmas spirit outdoors with lights, but be careful. You don’t want your cords getting caught or tangled in something which might start a fire!
Make sure they are well away from any combustible materials like plants and bushes before installing them so you won’t damage these items as well in case of an accident
Securely tie down individual strings if possible (or get someone else to do this task) because winds pick up quickly at nighttime
