Fire Safety tips for Homeowners in Ft. Worth, TX
Is your home a fire hazard? Most home owners have smoke alarms, but many are not working or old. Smoke alarms double the chance of your family surviving a fire, so it goes without saying that you should have several. Below are some precautions:
- Don’t neglect to test them and change the batteries regularly.
- You should test them once a month and change the batteries every 6 months (if your smoke alarms use replaceable batteries) regardless of whether they seem to need it, just to be on the safe side (some alarms are 10-year tamper resistant and don’t have replaceable batteries).
- You know the drill — make it a habit to change batteries twice a year when you turn your clocks.
- Purchase smoke alarms and other fire safety products at your local hardware stores.
