Top Causes of Home Fires in the US

11/6/2019 (Permalink)

According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), cooking equipment is the leading cause of home fires and heating equipment is the most common cause of home fire fatalities.

As the Fall and Winter seasons approach, when we start using heaters and fireplaces, and gathering and cooking for the holidays, please be sure to visit the National Fire Protection Association website and review how to prevent  these top causes of home fires and what action to take if they occur:

Cooking equipment

Heating

Smoking

Electrical

Candles

Curious Children

And don’t forget to check and test your smoke detectors at least twice a year. Most people do it when the time changes as a way to remember when to do it but you can test them at any time of the year.
