Incidences of fires in home across the US have increased substantially during the last few decades. But thanks to modern technologies, lives lost have come down dramatically. One of the modern inventions that have helped save lives is the ADT Home Security Systems that are basically used for warning. But that cannot possible be a reason to feel complacent. The point to ponder is do we really need to put ourselves in so much of danger. There can be nothing more practical that taking those simple steps that will prevent fires from emanating and spreading throughout the house and sometimes even beyond. Prevention therefore can go long way and what one needs to do is apply your commonsense. You don’t need to be an expert authority on fire fighting to make your home and neighborhood safer.

For safer fire free homes we need to begin at the kitchen where you will find the most common equipments that spark the fire in the first place. So getting your kitchen and later the entire household, including the garage for vulnerability is very important. If you can hire a consultant it should work well or better still why not talk to your fire prevention officer in your area. In fact they will be able to tip you on what to do and not to do too to make your home safer from fire. First, even before you have venture on your new endeavor make an inventory of all electrical appliances and gas fired equipment you use. Do not leave out even the most inconspicuous item like a hair dryer even. They can potentially burn down a house should a short circuit start from there.

After you have made an inventory go back to the manuals you must have received when you bought them from the store and make a thorough study to see what you have been missing all along. Even the most cautious householder would is certain to have missed something; a wrongly located refrigerator, a laundry machine too close to the cooking gas system, match boxes close to microwave oven, a can of petrol near to the power socket and many more. The list will fascinate you and you will even be left in bewilderment that you have been fortunate enough not to have fallen a victim to the fury of fire. First put them in order, or if you don’t have use for some of them, dispose it off safely.

Bring some of the healthy habits you have been used to but have become lethargic about recently. For example never leave your kitchen when an appliance is on. Don’t smoke lying on your bed, possibilities are you will doze off and spark a fire. Say no to alcoholic beverages when trying to repair electrical appliances. Be alert to the iron box while pressing your dresses and if possible try to use an intelligent box that will switch off over a period if unused. Never cook in an inebriated condition. Avoid loose dressing when near a machine. Remove wires and cables lying around your room. There are almost an endless number of things you can do, and every step will take you that much closer for a safer home.

If your home does not have an alarm system for fire, then put buying one for your home on the top of the agenda. Provide adequate budget and shop for one that will meet your needs. If you live in a condominium you can have standalone alarms, bigger independent homes will need a system that can be connected and synchronized for better management. If you have a home that is far too big to make an assessment all by yourself then approaching the fire control office or a professionally qualified person can help you a lot.
