Winter Fire Safety Reminders

1/2/2019 (Permalink)

Most believe winter time is the prime time for home fires. Let’s face it, we are engaged in activities that increase our chances for a home fire. Holiday decorations, an increase in cooking and baking, and trying to keep our homes warm are all potential fire hazards. Interestingly, according to the U.S. Fire administration (usfa.fema.gov) winter fires only account for 8% of U.S. fires. But here is the kicker; winter fires account for over 30% of fire related fatalities. We at SERVPRO of Carthage/Joplin believe an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Here are a few reminders to help keep your family safe.

  • Candle Fires: Candles are the number one cause of home fires in the U.S. Always keep candles away from any combustible materials. See our blog from earlier this year for more information.
