Tips on Fire Prevention in Mahoning County
There are several types of fires that could occur in your home, and surprisingly, even more ways to prevent them from happening. Don’t let a preventable emergency become your next headache!
Here are some tips to preventing home fires:
Your home’s electrical connections could become potential fire hazards. In order to prevent a residential fire, periodically check the outlets in your home.
For best practices, inspect each connected item for proper functioning, as broken or warped electronics can pose fire hazards. This includes those iPhone chargers with frayed ends!
Additionally, be sure to maintain an appropriate number of connections to each electrical outlet or extension cord. Over-extending electrical outlets and cords are a main cause of residential fires.
Most homes also contain hidden fire hazards that you have probably never given a second thought. These threats may include heating pads, dryers, and even light fixtures.
To prevent unsuspecting fire hazards from causing a fire in your home, regularly review potentially hazardous items. Always clean the lint traps in the dryer, and avoid overheating by abstaining from falling asleep with heating pads. It is also important to unplug all cords when they are not in use.
We've all heard that preparation prevents poor performance. When it comes to fire prevention in your home this simple cliché holds true. Although you never really know when an emergency may occur, you can always be prepared!
