Fire Prevention Month Highlights Safety
It's a disaster that destroys homes and claims lives, but there are ways to protect yourself against it!
Fire alarms can cut your risk of dying in a home fire by half.
Every year over three thousand people die in home fires and as temperatures continue to drop, Gainesville Fire Rescue warns against being hot-headed about your safety.
Some quick tips homeowners can check for include, making sure their fire alarm is less than ten years old, if you live in an older house schedule a check by an electrician to make sure all your wiring is safe and if you use gas appliances invest in a carbon monoxide detector.
GFR says they perform home checks by appointment, visit Gainesville Fire Rescue for more information.
