Important Fire Safety Equipment You Should Have In Your Home
Fire Escape Ladders- fire escape ladders are especially important if your home has more than one level. Typical fire escape ladders attach easily to a windowsill and enable anyone trapped inside of a burning house top escape to safety.
Smoke Detectors- being alerted of a fire in your home will enable you to act quickly and get your family to safety. Smoke detectors should be installed on every level in your home and inside every bedroom. You should also teach your family what to do when they hear the smoke alarm sound.
Fire Extinguishers- a high quality, easy to use fire extinguisher is important and there should be at least one in every home. Be sure to choose a model that is suitable for a wide range of fires and teach every member of your family how to use it.
Carbon Monoxide Alarms- in addition to installing smoke detectors in your home, you should also install carbon monoxide (CO) alarms. These should be placed near any fuel burning device.
Ensuring that your home and your family are protected in the event of a fire is important and with some simple fire safety equipment devices, you can do just that!
