Important Fire Safety Information
SERVPRO of Northwest Ventura County - sharing important fire safety information for you and your loved ones. Taking precautionary measures reduces the risk of fire, injury, property loss, and even death.
Fire safety is a very important topic, especially for children, the elderly and people with special needs. A fire can destroy everything in its path and devastate the people and communities it affects.
- Prevention – Do you have working smoke and carbon monoxide detectors? Are the batteries changed and the detectors tested every year? Is there a fire extinguisher handy? Can you operate a fire extinguisher?
- Escape Routes – Are exits accessible? Are the pathways to the exits free from clutter? Is there an evacuation plan in place? Are there pets that would need to be rescued?
- Treasures – Keep your valuables, special keepsakes, and heirlooms (e.g., jewelry, photos, etc.) in a fire proof safe or off site in a safe deposit box.
- Hoarding – Consider how excess belongings might make it difficult for people to leave their home and how these items might help fuel the fire.
