Fires can be a fact of nature, but they can also happen in your home or business. Check out these SERVPRO tips to reduce the risk of fire:

Watch your cooking - Stay in the kitchen if you are frying, grilling, or broiling food. Never allow young children around the stove or oven, especially if they are not closely attended.

Give space heaters space - Keep space heaters at least 3 feet away from anything that can burn.

Smoke outside - If you must smoke inside, have a sturdy, deep ashtray. Never smoke in bed.

Keep matches and lighters out of reach - Keep matches and lighters in high cabinets, preferably under a child lock.

Inspect electrical cords - Replace cords that are cracked, damaged, have broken plugs or have loose connections

Be careful when using candles - Keep candles at least one foot from anything that can burn. Blow them out before you leave the room or go to sleep.

Have a fire escape plan - Make a fire escape plan and practice it twice a year.

Install smoke alarms - Install alarms on every level of your office or home and inside bedrooms. Interconnect them so they all sound at once.

Test smoke alarms - Test alarms once per month. Replace batteries once per year or as needed.

Install sprinklers       - Sprinklers can help maintain and sometimes even extinguish fires, giving your local fire department a better chance of saving your property.
