It is the holiday season, a time we look forward to spending quality time with family, friends and co-workers. It is also a time where we are easily distracted. There are so many ways holiday fires can ignite. It’s not just the most wonderful time of the year. It is the most dangerous time of the year because more household fires and commercial fires break out than other time of the year. To prevent loss of life and avoid property damage and expensive replacement cost, it’s important to keep in mind fire safety at all times.
The most common holiday fire is an open flame fire. Open flame fires usually happen on Christmas day and New Year’s Day. How can you protect life and property from open flame fires? You can start by having Notifier fire alarms installed.
Notifier fire alarms are designed to speed up the response time any time a fire emergency happens because Notifier’s fire alarm control panels include advanced smoke sensing technology. In other words, owners of Notifier fire alarms have intelligent fire alarm systems. The fire alarm control panels can even include voice evacuation systems to help guide building occupants out to safety. You can purchase Notifier fire alarms that are part of integrate systems and control the entire alarm system over a single network. From gas detection to fire system accessories, you can count on Notifier fire alarms to protect lives and your property no matter if you are on the scene when a fire emergency occurs.
The following is a list of fire safety tips you should be aware of to prevent fires this holiday season:
Never leave a stove top unattended. It’s in the top five for causes of holiday fires. If you do have to leave the kitchen for a moment, bring a reminder with you such as a pot holder or apron. These reminders will signal to you that you have something cooking. Always have portable fire extinguisher in close proximity to your kitchen to be prepared for a fire emergency.
Keep candles at least a foot away from any item that can burn. Candle fires are four times more likely to happen during the holidays than any other time of the year.
Keep Christmas trees moist. It only takes 30 seconds for a dry Christmas tree to catch on fire and engulf your entire building. A Christmas tree should be watered every single day for the best holiday fire safety.
