Simple Steps to Protect Your Property from a Fire

Do you know the basics of fire safety? In elementary school, we all learn stop, drop, and roll and to check our smoke detectors. What else can you do to keep your family safe and reduce the risk of a fire? The answer may be surprisingly simple: yard work and home maintenance.

Yes, basic yard work and home maintenance can help reduce the risk of your home catching fire. First, landscape your yard in a way that minimizes the amount of vegetation near your home. Move shrubs away from your house, and plant trees so that their branches do not hang over your roof. When it rains, keep your grass trimmed short so it is less apt to spread a fire.

Second, there are things you can do around your home to slow down fires. Start by cleaning out your gutters and relocating wood piles to the edge of your yard. Once these basic steps are taken care of, consider upgrading any combustible door or window sills to fire-resistant ones.
