'Tis the season for at-home entertaining - meals, friends, loved ones, fun and yes, even fires. Fire fighters respond to calls of nearly 400,000 house fires annually, as reported by the National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA). Many fires occur in cold weather months since more individuals bring warmth into their houses with things like traditional candles or holiday lighting. These fires lead to over 15,000 civilian fatalities or injuries annually.

Fire-proof the holiday season using these suggestions that protect your family and your home:

Go Flame-less

Minimize your risk of fire by using flame-less candles. Though they look and smell like actual candles, they do not pose the same safety risks. Scentsy Wickless Candles offer the light and ambiance of traditional candles without having the smoke, soot or an open flame. With more than 80 fragrances to pick from and 100 designs of warmers available, there's a fit for every scent personality and home decor style.

Prevent Electrical Outlet Overload

Don't overload electric outlets and extension cords with holiday lights or other electronic devices. Plug only one heat-producing device, such as electric blankets, irons, toaster ovens or coffee machine, into a receptacle outlet at a time. Consider avoiding outlet overload by selecting battery-powered options when they're available.

Cook With Care

Unattended cooking is the leading source of U.S. house fire accidents, as reported by the NFPA. Don't stray too far from the kitchen when you're frying, grilling or broiling food. If you're boiling, baking, or roasting, make sure to check it regularly and use a timer to prompt you as soon as it's finished. Plug microwave ovens and other cooking appliances directly into an outlet. Do not ever use an extension cord for a cooking appliance, since it may overload the circuit and create a fire. jasper georgia hotels

Be Prepared

Develop a fire-safe house by installing fire extinguishers and smoke detector. Make use of a mobile fire extinguisher to save lives and property by putting out or containing small fires. Store extinguishers where they may be quickly accessed in locations with great fire risk, such as in the kitchen or close to the garage door. Smoke detector ought to be placed within each room of the residence, except for the kitchen, and need to be checked once each month.

Possess a Plan of Action

Establish a fire escape plan with the members of your family, and practice it often. You need to always have two ways to leave each room, generally a doorway and a window. Practicing in a casual atmosphere might help children feel confident with executing your plan in an emergency. Select a landmark outside, like a tree in the next-door neighbor's yard or the mailbox, as a meeting site for your family.

Using these fire safety ideas can help ensure your memories of this fall and winter season are full of friends and relatives, not flames. things to do in jasper georgia
