We love the Holidays and the joy and cheer that comes with spending time with loved ones. Keeping your home safe in case of fire is an important aspect of having a warm holiday season. First and foremost, always have fire extinguishers available in the kitchen and at least one fire extinguisher on each level or floor of a home, make sure it is up to date and ready to go. According to the National Fire Protection Assosciation (NFPA), an average of 240 home fires begin with Christmas trees every year. Keeping extinguishers at the ready is an important aspect of safety that can nip a fire in the bud in the very earliest stages. Another inexpensive strategy for improving safety and security around the home is to install carbon monoxide detectors.
