Precautions to Prevent Fires

5/26/2021 (Permalink)

Below are precautions you can take to help prevent house fires.

Electrical Equipment

  1. Make sure your outlets aren't overloaded 
  2. Your Electrical appliances don't have loose or frayed cords/plugs
  3. Don't have electrical wires under heavy equipment.


Keep candles on a level surface, away from combustible materials and out of reach of children or pets. Always blow them out before leaving the house. 

Cooking Equipment

When a pot and pan splatter grease, it can take seconds to cause a fire. When cooking stay close by, especially if using oil or high temperatures. Keep combustibles away from the heat source (e.g. oven mitts, dish towels, paper towels).

Fire Pits

  1. You may need a permit depending on where you live to have a fire. 
  2. Use a screen over your fire to keep the sparks from flying 
  3. Keep a bucket of water or a hose close by.
  4. You have to have a permit if your fire is bigger than 2 ft tall and 3 ft diameter. 
  5. Keep at least 25 ft away from structures and tree limbs.
