Fire Prevention Month

March has known to be the Fire Prevention Month. I was browsing fire prevention tips and came across to two helpful sites. One was the tips given by Lapu-Lapu City Fire Safety Department.

These are distributed to schools, private agencies and companies in Lapu-Lapu City every March, which is Fire Prevention Awareness Month.

1. Avoid electrical overloading.
2. Unplug all electrical appliances after every use.
3. Check all electrical installations regularly.
4. Check gas stoves and LPG tanks for leaks.
5. Keep children away from flammable liquids, lighters and matches.
6. Avoid smoking in bed.
7. Ensure you have a pre-fire plan at your residence or office.
8. Do not leave lighted mosquito coils unattended.
9. Always take extra precautions while cooking.
10. Never leave lighted candles unattended.
11. Do not throw lighted cigar or cigarette butts on dried leaves and garbage.
12. Strictly obey the no smoking signs.
13. Maintain proper housekeeping to eliminate fire hazards.
14. Check fire protection gadgets or devices of appliances and equipment regularly.
15. Be fire-safety conscious.

May I add considering buying a safety equipment? Well, if you can afford, why not right? Especially those who are in the business.

    These are all great tips. Thanks. It is also important to have several fire extinguishers in several rooms in the house, and like you said to check them all. It is also important that everyone know how to use them. Just take a minute to look over the instructions. Another tip I would like to add on to your segment about adding too many plugs into one outlet..I just installed fire prevention outlets. It makes me feel more comfortable not having to worry about having electrical fires start.
