Fire Damage Prevention Means Fire Prevention

Here is the simple truth about preventing fire damage: Fire damage prevention is almost completely about fire prevention.

When a fire starts, it consumes and blights everything it touches or even gets near, extending tendrils of toxic smoke and soot to travel throughout your home or business and do its destructive will.

The only way to protect your property from fire damage is to protect it from fire. Seems obvious, but there are all manner of so-called “fireproofing” products that could distract property owners from the first and, by far, most effective measures for “fireproofing”: fire prevention and safety.

So we’ve pulled together some great resources to help you safeguard your property and the people within from fire.

First, Fire Safety

We talk about protecting your property from fire and its ravaging effects, aiming to save you money and headaches that come with even small property fires.

Don’t ignore that burn ban during the dry spell. Don’t leave that propane grill unattended overnight. Get those stacks of old magazines off the floor in the garage.

Think about the human conditions that can increase fire risk (fatigue, distraction, alcohol consumption) and other factors like activities and circumstances that increase risk (cooking, burning rubbish, fuel concentrated in enclosed spaces), and head off fire risks before they evolve.

A Few More Things to Consider

If you safeguard your home with smoke detectors, ensure your family understands how to prevent and react to fires, and follow holiday cooking safety guidelines, you will have taken steps to dramatically reduce the risk of catastrophic fire damage to your home, on top of reducing the safety risks for your family. Here are a few more things to consider to even further reduce the risk of fire to your property:
