MINIMIZE HOME FIRE EMERGENCIES

      Because pf the increased number of fire related emergencies seen of TV lately, I was reminded of some things homemakers should be aware of that might help minimize fire emergencies at home. Drawing from my experience as a former Fire and Burglar Alarm Dealer, I share these tips and hope they will resonate with my readers.

The first tip has to do with fire extinguishers. The placement of them could be very critical. For example, if the fire extinguisher is located in a kitchen closet and a fire breaks out in the kitchen, the first reaction to the fire might be to run out of the kitchen without thinking about the fire extinguisher in the closet. Of course one may get the opportunity to locate the fire extinguisher, but one may not, depending upon the severity of the fire. Therefore, locate the fire extinguisher outside of the kitchen but near the kitchen entrance as possible. Husbands, you may have to do a hard sell to the wives because fire safety is always at odds with convenience and attractiveness.

A second tip is to become familiar with the location of the electrical service panel which are in many cases located in the garage or a hallway panel. This could be helpful in the event of an electrical fire. The idea is to turn off the main circuit breaker. This however, could pose   a problem if the fire occurs at night. (Lights will not work if main circuit breaker is turned off.) Alternatively, become familiar with circuit breakers by appliance, device or other designations. An example: if the fire involved an elecric clothes dryer, one would turn off the circuit breaker for the clother dryer.

Hope these tips may be helpful. Its my pleasue to help where I can.
