Burn accidents are responsible for about 180000 deaths every year. With fire incidents being reported almost every other day, you’re probably thinking of how you can upscale residential security to protect your home from fire. The good news is that you can fireproof your home, possessions, and family with simple precautionary measures.
Each year, Americans lose billions of dollars’ worth of property to housefires. It’s a devastating thought: everything you own – including things that can’t be replaced – gone in a few minutes.
That’s to say nothing of the human cost. Thousands of people are killed or are injured each year in housefires. Perhaps the worst part is that so many of these fires could have been prevented with the installation of a fire alarm system, or by taking simple home fire safety measures.
In this blog post, we’ll look at the importance of having a fire alarm system, some of the most common reasons housefires start, along with some steps you can take to fireproof your home.
