Fire Proofing Your Home

Every time I see something about house fires on the news, I get sick to my stomach. Fires devastate people's lives and often result in death or injuries so I would be lying if I said I don't worry about it. We purchased this home back in the late Fall of last year and I was a crazy person when it came to fire proofing our home. Our house is large with our kids on one side of the house and the master bedroom on the other side. When we bought the home it seemed like a great choice but after we moved in, I really didn't like it. The kids seem so far away and I worry that if something would happen in the night, I might not hear them. 

*Purchase smoke detectors for EVERY room! There are so many on the market today and they even offer them to match your decor. A great modern choice is the Chick-A-Dee Smoke Detector

*Keep your house free of clutter. Regularly clean out closets and get rid of things you are not using. Things that you aren't using but you want to keep should be stored somewhere like an attic or basement.

*Swap candles out for wax warmers. I love some of the newer ones on the market because the wax doesn't get hot enough to burn you. I dumped an entire container on my hand and arm recently and it dried almost immediately and did not even leave a red mark.

* Make sure you are not overloading your wires. If you are constantly blowing breakers and fuses, you might have too many things on one circuit and this should be looked at!

*Keep a fire extinguisher in your kitchen. You never know when you might need one! Just today while
cooking Easter dinner I started a fire on my stove. It sure makes me feel better knowing I have a fire extinguisher if I need one.

*Regularly have surprise fire drills for your family. Make sure your kids know how to safely get out of the home in case of a fire and have a safe meeting place. Be sure to tell your children how important it is for them to never re-enter the home of it is on fire. 

These are some really simple things that can make a big difference should you be faced with the unfortunate event of having a fire in your home. What does your family do to fire-proof?
