Fire Safety in the Home

Most people tend to feel safer in their homes than anywhere else. Unfortunately, this is a false perception to some extent. Many different kinds of accident are more likely to occur in the home than anywhere else, including accidental fires. Every household needs to be equipped with certain safety equipment, as well as information about fire response and prevention.

Unfortunately, taking reasonable precautions is not always enough to protect us from catastrophe. If you have experienced a fire in your home due to another party’s careless actions, you could be eligible to receive repayment for your related losses.

Fire Safety Advice

A few precautions that can help you reduce your chances of a home fire include:

  • Make sure every room in your residence has a smoke alarm with working batteries. These alarms should be tested at least twice a year to ensure that they are still functional. Do not put off replacing the batteries when it is time to do so; this task should be performed as soon as you are aware of its necessity.
  • If you smoke while in the home, be very careful while doing so. You may want to consider limiting all smoking to outside of your home. If you choose to smoke indoors, make sure you use a sturdy ashtray that cannot easily be knocked over. Never leave a lit cigarette unattended, and be cautious of any nearby papers or other flammable materials while smoking.
  • Have an emergency escape plan, and make sure everyone in the household knows it. You should have at least one alternative escape route planned in case your usual exit from the home is blocked during a fire. You should also know where the nearest available phone is, so you can contact emergency services without worrying about finding your cell phone before leaving the building.

A fire in the home can have many potential causes, including frayed or worn electrical wiring, defective electronic products, faulty building design, and more. If you have been injured or lost your home due to another person or entity’s poor choices, our San Antonio fire injury attorneys will fight for you.
