When home fire sprinklers are used with working smoke alarms, your chances of surviving a fire are greatly increased. Soon you may need to fire up the furnace so it is important to have your system professionally inspected, cleaned and serviced. Having working smoke alarms in your home give you precious time to escape a home fire alive. November, December and January account for a larger percentage of residential structure fires than any other months in the year.


Caution everyone to stay low to the floor when escaping from fire and never to open doors that are hot. Unfortunately, candles can lead to home fires when they are left unattended and ignite nearby combustibles. Take the mystery out of fire play by teaching your children that fire is a tool, not a toy.
As the weather beings to change, here are some helpful fire safety reminders from the Asheville Fire Department.


Have any alternative heating sources checked out as well, such as fireplaces and wood-burning stoves. Use safety caps to cover all unused outlets, especially if there are small children in the home.
