Do you have a fire safety plan in place for your home and/or business? It’s important to be prepared in case of an emergency and often a legal requirement for the workplace to have fire prevention and emergency exit plans.
In your home, make sure your fire alarms are working, tested regularly and installed on every level, especially in bedrooms. At your place of employment, make sure you are aware of escape route and procedure in case of evacuation. Every state has different fire prevention regulations and requirements for the workplace, so don’t hesitate to ask if you are confused or unaware.
Fire alarms and safety plans help you to get to safety quickly. The beginning of the year is a great time to go over your plan, whether personal or workplace related.
