NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – Every 24 seconds, firefighters across the nation are springing into action to fight fires. Learn simple steps to keep your home safe.
Luckily, almost everything you need can be found at The Home Depot. Dave White, a home improvement specialist, says you need to have a working smoke alarm, fire extinguishers, and an escape plan for the family.
Most fires begin in the kitchen. Kidde recently put a smoke and CO alarm with a sealed battery and voice alarms.
There are specific fire extinguishers for the kitchen, multiuse and more. It’s critical to make sure your fire extinguisher is the proper extinguisher, that it is fully charged, and that you know how to operate it. To operate a fire extinguisher, remember PASS (pull the trigger, aim, squeeze, and sweep.)
