Protect Your Family from Home Fires
Safe Kids Worldwide is a nonprofit organization that works to keep kids safe. According to safekids.org, home fires account for nearly 90 percent of all fire-related deaths and at least one child dies in a home fire every day.
Safe Kids Worldwide offers many tips to help protect kids and families from home fires and bring awareness to actions that can be taken to prepare for and know how to act in the event of a fire. This alone, will help save lives. First and foremost, working fire alarms are critical to staying safe. Smoke alarms that are working properly should be installed on every level of the home. Efforts should be made to teach kids never to play with matches or lighters. Always store them out of the reach of children. Create and practice an escape plan. In this plan, be sure to include two ways out of every room. Teach the kids how to respond if they hear the fire alarm. Make them aware of the importance of staying low and getting out as quickly as possible.
Following these tips can be very helpful in keeping families safe in the event of a home fire. Being prepared and taking precautions before an actual fire emergency can help families know exactly what to do if they find themselves in a fire emergency situation.
