Don't Forget About Fire!
Fall and winter weather, coupled with seasonal holiday heating, cooking and decorations, typically brings about an increase in residential fire frequency. SERVPRO of Branch and South Calhoun County fire damage restoration experts realize that people have as little as two minutes to escape a burning home before it's too late to get out. In a matter of moments, a small flame can become a major fire, making it critical to be prepared with an escape plan in place. Once a plan is developed, it is critical everyone in the home understands the plan; the best way to do this is by practicing the escape plan at least twice a year.
Working smoke detectors along with building and practicing a home escape plan increase your chance of surviving a fire. The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) promotes steps to help you develop an emergency escape plan. Simply having a plan for your home or business is not enough. Your family and employees must be fully aware of the plan and practice it on a regular basis.
