Fire Prevention Week | How to Prevent Home Fires

Fire Prevention Week is next week (October 4-10), which is why we are focusing on how to prevent home fires and, specifically, electrical fire safety. Sponsored by the National Fire Protection Association, this year’s theme is “Hear the Beep Where You Sleep.”

Although installing new smoke alarms and checking existing ones are extremely important for preventing fires, there are many other things you can do to promote electrical safety in your home.
