We’ve had a good year overall, and we’re prepared to welcome the new year of 2023. But it’s equally crucial to keep safe as we commemorate the end of a year unlike any other. These fire safety suggestions have been produced by Fireman Safety to help you celebrate the New Year safely.
New Year’s Fire Safety Tips
It’s crucial to be conscious of fire safety as we usher in the new year. Here are some recommendations to keep you safe this year:
- Install smoke alarms in each bedroom and on each floor of your house. Every month, check to make sure they are operating correctly.
- Make sure your family has a fire escape plan and practice it at least twice a year.
Keep matches and other flammable things out of children’s reach.
- If you’re using fireworks, follow all safety instructions.
- Never leave candles unattended. Before going to bed or leaving the room, put out the flames.
Following these simple tips can help keep your family safe from fire this year.
Fire safety checklist for the new year
- Inspect the fire extinguishers.
Ensure that your fire extinguishers are installed in accordance with the relevant local fire codes. Check to see if your extinguishers have recently been examined and that they aren’t expired or are soon to expire. Verify that there is no physical damage to the fire alarm’s hoses, canisters, or other parts.
- Check your fire sprinklers.
Perform a visual assessment to make sure no damage has been done to pipes, valves, or other equipment if sprinklers have already been placed in accordance with the code. Leaks should be checked on every surface, and any damage should be professionally fixed.
- Check the Fire Suppression System in Your Kitchen
Make sure the fire suppression system is installed and in working order because fires in commercial kitchens are one of the main causes of building fires. Before activating the suppression system, make sure the nearest extinguisher is not expired and check it for damage.
- Smoke Alarms
Make that the appropriate smoke and CO alarms are installed in your structure in accordance with the fire code. Check the functionality of battery-powered alarms and change the fire alarm batteries as necessary.
- Fire Signage
According to the design of commercial buildings, specific locations must have fire safety signage. Clear signage that is not obstructed by décor or furniture is ideal.
