Are You Prepared?

Prepare your home and family in case a fire occurs! While no one wants to think about a fire occurring in their home, being preparation can save lives and lessen property damage in your Idaho home. First, be sure to have smoke alarms in every sleeping room and on every level of your home. Also, test each smoke alarm monthly using the test button and replace batteries as needed! You might be thinking…Monthly?! Yes. Monthly! You never know when fire could be hitting your home.

Next, be sure everyone knows what to do upon hearing a smoke alarm go off — this is especially important with small children. Make an emergency plan, and practice it with your family. Think through things like escape routes from various rooms, a family meeting place once safely outside, and which family member will be responsible for getting small children and any pets to safety.
