Fire Prevention Week Is Here — Every Gulfport, MS Home Needs a Fire Safety Plan

Fire Prevention Week is just around the corner — the time of the year when everyone comes together to reduce the risk of fire in homes across the country. For most of us, fire safety education started and stopped in grade school. Now, as a homeowner, you owe it to yourself and to your family to reduce the risk of a fire and keep everyone safe.

Fire Safety at a Glance

If there is ever a fire in your home, you typically have less than two minutes to escape from the property. Unfortunately, few people realize this. Therefore, it’s important to keep an early warning system active in your home. For most, that means a working smoke detector on each floor, outside sleeping areas, and inside bedrooms.

Additionally, you need to:

  • Test your smoke alarms monthly and replace the batteries as needed.
  • Keep a close eye out while cooking in the kitchen.
  • Do not leave lit candles unattended.
  • Teach children about fire safety.
  • Keep pets away from open flames.
  • Not store flammable liquids or materials in hot, confined spaces.
