Keep Your Family Safe This Holiday Season
The holidays are here and that means time with family and friends. Unfortunately, this is one of the most dangerous times of the year for household fires. More than twice as many open flame fires are reported on Christmas Day and New Year's Day than on average days throughout the year. There are several ways that you can keep your family safe this holiday season:
Kitchen fires are the most common type of home fire during the holidays. Never leave cooking food unattended and always keep a fire extinguisher handy. Keep flammable items such as plastic bags and towels away from the stove and oven and always supervise children in the kitchen.
Candles start two out of five home decoration structure fires. Keep any flammable items, such as curtains and holiday decorations, at least three feet from burning candles. Never leave candles unattended and always blow out all candles before going to bed. Keep candles on a level surface and utilize LED flameless candles when possible.
If your family enjoys a real Christmas tree be sure to keep it adequately watered. Even well watered trees will dry out within about four weeks and dry needles are a fire hazard. Check light strands for fraying and discard damaged strands of lights. Always unplug your Christmas tree lights before leaving the house or going to bed.
Stay safe this holiday season. If your home suffers a fire or smoke damage, call SERVPRO of Hamilton County anytime day or night at 317-773-0422. Our restoration experts are ready to help!
Stay Safe in Severe Weather
Storms often come with no warning. Prepare your home and family ahead of time to minimize your risks in case severe weather strikes. Follow these guidelines to keep your loved ones safe and protect your home or business:
* Keep a flashlight in an easily accessible location on every floor of your house. Check the batteries frequently and replace as necessary. Flashlights are safer than candles.
*Develop a disaster plan for your home and place of business and practice evacuation routes or where to take cover in case of severe weather.
*Always keep a battery powered radio on hand and check the batteries frequently so you can hear weather alerts even if you lose power.
*Keep a first aid kit on hand and an emergency stash of food and water.
Taking simple precautions ahead of time and preparing for severe weather can mean the difference if you or your loved ones are caught in a storm. If severe weather strikes your home or business, call SERVPRO of Hamilton County at 317-773-0422 for immediate restoration services.
