Fire Safety Tips

Burning match with an orange flame on a black background. It is important to teach children about fire safety.

SERVPRO of Wheaton / Glen Ellyn / Lisle has responded to many types of fire damage and we know that it is never too early to teach children about fire safety. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), some children play with fire out of curiosity, boredom, or peer pressure and do not realize the danger fire poses. Each year children cause fires that result in hundreds of injuries and millions of dollars in damage. Here are some safety tips from NFPA to keep your family safe:

  • Keep matches and lighters out of the reach of children, up high, preferably in a locked cabinet
  • Closely supervise children, making sure that they are kept away from other fire sources, including lit candles, cigarettes, bonfires, and stoves
  • It is natural for young children to be curious and ask questions about fire, play with fire trucks, or pretend to cook. Use these opportunities to teach them about fire safety
  • Explain that fire moves very fast and can hurt as soon as it touches them. Tell them that this is why matches and lighters are tools for adults only
  • Establish clear rules and consequences about unsupervised and unauthorized uses of fire

White smoke alarm with a black background. Special smoke alarms are available for hearing impaired people.

Working smoke alarms save lives.  However, people who are deaf or hard of hearing may not be able to depend on the traditional smoke alarm to alert them to a fire.  The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) offers these safety tips for hearing impaired people:

  • Smoke alarms and alert devices are available for people who are deaf or hard of hearing
  • Strobe lights that flash when the smoke alarm sounds. The lights warn people of a possible fire
  • When people who are deaf are asleep, a pillow or bed shaker can wake them so they can escape. The shaker is activated by the sound of a smoke alarm
  • When people who are hard of hearing are asleep, an alert device that uses a loud, mixed, low-pitched sound can wake them. They may find a pillow or bed shaker helpful. These devices are triggered by the sound of the smoke alarm
  • Research the products and select the ones that best meet your needs
