Fires are no match for the experienced and equipped disaster recovery specialists at Rock Emergency!

Are you someone that has a fire safety checklist? Do you get the fire extinguisher checked when required? Are you confident that your home is 100% fire proofed? Does it have a cord? Does it have a flame? Are the outlets protected? Is it flammable?

Are you questioning your confidence after the last three questions? Do not worry, you have come to right place. We will talk about what should be on your checklist and the preventive measures you can take to protect your home.

House Checklist

  • Electrical cords and plugs need to be in good condition.Keep the appliances clean and uncluttered.
  • Never leave cooking unattended.
  • Keep oven mitts and other cloth and paper out of the way of the burners.
  • Ensure curling irons and hot rollers are unplugged after each use.
  • Clean debris on and around the furnace.
  • Remove all flammable materials and chemicals near the furnace area.
  • Make sure your outlets are grounded.
  • Do not overload your outlets.
  • Blow out candles after each use.
  • Never leave candles unattended.
  • Keep matches and lighters out of the reach of children.

Fire Precautions

Smoke detectors are critical for the early detection of a fire in your home and it could mean the difference between life and death.

  • They need to be installed on every level of your home and near each sleeping area.
  • Test your smoke alarm monthly.
  • Batteries are working in all smoke alarms.

There are three different types of fire extinguishers for your home. They have a specific letter that you will see on the label when you purchase one.

  • A- Is the most used in the household. It’s meant for wood, paper, and cloth.
  • B- Is for flammable liquids, such as gasoline or cooking oil.
  • C- Is for live electricity.

Having an escape plan is critical for you and your family's safety. Fires spread fast and are very dark. Once your smoke alarm goes off you have 2 minutes to get out of your home. You will need to trust your escape plan and your natural instincts to get outside.

  • Every room should have two exits.
  • Draw a floor plan out. It should be the shortest, safest way outside.
  • Choose a safe place to meet outside.
  • Practice your plan often.
