Home Fire Safety Inspection

To help reduce your chance of having a fire or other emergency in your home, routine home safety inspections should be done by occupants of the home. In most cases, these inspections will only take a few minutes. Holiday trees, lights and decorations, and candle use are some of the most common causes of fires during the holidays. Learn more about what you can do to prevent holiday fires.

Smoke Detectors & Carbon Monoxide Safety

During a fire, there is no time to waste. A working smoke detector, properly installed, will double your chances of survival during a home fire. A smoke detector will give you the time you need to get out alive. Learn more about proper installation of your smoke detectors and maintenance. Often called the silent killer, carbon monoxide is an invisible, odorless, colorless gas created when fuels (such as gasoline, wood, coal, natural gas, propane, oil, and methane) burn incompletely. In the home, heating and cooking equipment that burn fuel are potential sources of carbon monoxide. Properly installed and maintained Carbon Monoxide (CO) detectors can save your life. Learn about alarms and detectors.
