Teach Your Kids Fire Safety To Help Prevent Fire Damage In Nashua
Prevention and Teaching Fire Safety can Play a Large Role in Stopping Potential Fire Damage on Your Property
Fire is a real fear for any parent. The fire has the potential to cause immense harm and disrupt your life for many weeks or even months during the cleanup. A blaze is a frightening occurrence for family members of any age and especially for children. However, it is also true that many fires are preventable.
Teaching your children some basic fire safety gives them more confidence and you more peace of mind. Tell your kids about some easy, simple fire safety practices that they can understand and do. Getting your kids on board with fire safety helps protect them from harm. Teaching your children fire safety also reduces the risk of accidents and fire damage to your Nashua home.
Teach kids not to play with fire or matches, or to light candles. Put matches or lighters in a secure location that your children cannot get to – it is even better if they do not know about it. It is also wise to teach them about safety when you let off fireworks or host or attend a bonfire. Let your children see how you handle the fire.
SERVPRO suggests talking to your children about smoke alarms and what to do when they hear one. Tell them how important it is to stay low and get out. Practice exit routes together as a family and talk to them about what they ought to do in the event of a fire. Involve them in smoke alarm tests.
Show your kids how to unplug appliances and make sure they know to tell you at once if they notice a frayed cord.
