In the days, weeks and months to come, you will face the difficult task of replacing and recovering as much of your loss as possible; cleaning, repairing, and rebuilding of your property; and attempting to resume your normal life as soon as possible.
Homes today are brimming with state-of-the-art technology, entertainment, and computer equipment. However, when too many lights and appliances are attached to the electrical system, it will overload—and then overheat. The heat causes the wire insulation to melt and ignite, resulting in an electrical fire. Most electrical fires can be prevented.
Special populations, such as kids with autism, deaf or hearing impaired persons, people with physical limitations, people with service animals, and senior citizens all have unique safety and escape planning requirements.
Every season brings its own safety hazards. During the summer months, there is an increased risk of fire associated with the use of barbecue grills, gasoline, air conditioners, and other electrical appliances.
Even in the South, the winter months bring about many changes in your home. The heating system kicks on, you may use your fireplace or log-burning stove, and you prepare for the holidays by decorating and cooking holiday feasts.
