Home Safety Assessment

Check smoke detecorsStatistics released by the National Fire Protection Agency indicate a home structure fire is reported every 85 seconds. Fire moves fast and people need to be ready to move faster. The fact is, when fire strikes, a home can be engulfed in smoke and flames in just two minutes. That's why it's essential to maintain smoke alarms on every level of your home, create a fire escape plan, and have a basic understanding of potential hazards within your home.
