Fire Prevention Week, sponsored by the National Fire Protection Association, is October 4-10, 2015 with the theme “Hear the Beep Where you Sleep” to remind you that every bedroom needs a working smoke alarm. In addition to functioning smoke alarms, there are many safe practices that can help prevent fires and promote electrical safety through your home.
Follow these tips for a safer home:
Smoke Alarms should be installed in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area, and on every level of the home. They should be TESTED MONTHLY, and batteries should be replaced each year. Replace alarms every 10 YEARS.
Do NOT overload outlets. Power strips do NOT provide more power to a location, only more access to the same limited capacity of the circuit into which it is connected
Use only light bulbs that match the RECOMMENDED WATTAGE on the light fixture
