In the Spotlight

IF YOUR CONCERN OVER THE ECONOMY is tempting you to use alternative heating sources that may be less expensive, REMEMBER the risk of HOME FIRES, America’s most common and widespread disaster:

  • It is critical to use alternative devices that are new or in good working order
  • Turn off units when you go to bed or leave the room
  • Never disable smoke alarms or leave the stove unattended
  • Remove lint from the dryer after each load

*********PREVENT HOME FIRES BEFORE THEY START!! ************

FIRE IS FAST……FIRE IS HOT……FIRE IS DARK…..FIRE IS DEADLY…..Smoke and toxic gases kill more people than flames do…..TIME is the biggest enemy and every second counts…..HAVE A SOUND ESCAPE PLAN…..Prepare for a fire by knowing your exits from your property….Security bars require special precautions….Exit your house/flat as soon as the fire starts—do not attempt to save the property……….If a door is hot on touch, do not proceed…..Always have a place nearby where you should meet up and always take count of people…………ONCE OUT STAY OUT!!!
