Preventing fires is crucial for safety at home and in the workplace. Here are some key tips from SERVPRO® of South Nashville to help you reduce the risk of fire:

Kitchen Safety:

  • Never leave cooking unattended. Most kitchen fires start because the cook leaves the kitchen.
  • Wear short or close-fitting sleeves to prevent clothing from catching fire.
  • Keep flammable items like towels, oven mitts, and curtains away from the stove.
  • Have a fire extinguisher accessible and know how to use it.
  • Let hot grease cool before disposing of it in a metal container, not in the trash.

Outdoor Burning:

  • Keep a bucket of water or a hose nearby when burning yard debris.
  • Ensure the area is clear of flammable objects and avoid burning during high winds.
  • Never leave a fire unattended and make sure it's completely out before leaving.

House Safety

  • Install smoke alarms on every level of your home and test them monthly.
  • Keep matches and lighters out of reach of children.
  • Create and practice a fire escape plan with your family, ensuring everyone knows at least two ways out of each room.
  • Regularly inspect and maintain electrical appliances and avoid overloading circuits.

By following these tips, you can significantly reduce the risk of fire in your home or business.
