No matter if you’re springing forward or falling back, having a home safety fire checklist is essential. When it comes to the safety of your family and your home, being prepared for a fire emergency is necessary. Here is a helpful checklist to make sure every homeowner is ready and knows what to do in the event of a fire emergency in their own home.
Check And Replace Essentials
There are a variety of systems that you should always check on and replace in your home to allow for the utmost safety in your humble abode. First things first, carbon monoxide detectors and smoke detectors should always have their batteries replaced twice a year. What this also means is that the actual smoke detectors need to be done every ten years while the carbon monoxide detectors need to be replaced and switched out every five years. There are also lightbulbs, HVAC filters, dryer filters and hoses, and fire extinguishers that require review and replacement periodically. For instance, when it comes to fire extinguishers, homeowners should always take the time to review the pressure gauge and then verify that the locking pin is still intact.
Reset And Update Certain Things In The Home
From home alarm systems and DVR’s to ceiling fans and computer passwords, there are a lot of things in the home that needs always to be reset and updated for the safety of your home. When it comes to home alarm systems, specific systems will automatically refresh and adjust to any Daylight Savings Time that occurs throughout the year. But, you’ll want to check with your home’s security company to determine the specific needs of your system to ensure the safety of your entire family.
Every homeowner will want to take the time to make sure that their home is prepared and equipped with all the essentials when it comes to a potential fire emergency. Being prepared for the worst case scenario is always ideal.
