Investigations into home fire deaths all too often indicate that a smoke alarm did not sound. Do all you can to avoid this potential fate
We’ve all heard the adage “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. This is especially true when it comes to fire safety within your home. We can do more to minimize potential exposure to injury and damage due to fire in our homes.
Smoke Detectors/Fire Alarms
According to the Canada Safety Council, smoke alarms save lives. Investigations into home fire deaths all too often indicate that a smoke alarm did not sound. Whether it had been disconnected, was not in working order, had dead/removed batteries or was never in place – the specific reasons vary. There is no time like the present to make sure that your alarms are all properly installed, maintained, located, tested and have battery power/electric power (as applicable). A fire alarm that is not working is worse than not having one.
The Canadian Safety Council advises:
Another level of security for fire protection is the Central Station Alarm, which can be tied into home monitoring systems and is monitored by an alarm company 24/7. When activated the alarm company notifies the Fire Department. Having a Central Station Alarm system is a great idea for many reasons beyond best in class security, which even includes receiving credits on your premium with AIG. It’s great for those who travel extensively or often spend time outside the home.
Consider the installation of heat detection units as well. Locate them in the furnace area, the garage, the attic and kitchen.
