Increasing home fire safety precautions

As more people spend time at home during the present situation, local fire chiefs are sharing information on keeping your household and family safer from potential fires.  Algoma Fire Chief Tom Ackerman says most residential fires begin in the kitchen area.  He shares advice on ways to prevent any fires while preparing meals.

 

 

Ackerman also recommends not overusing extension cords and making sure the wire gauge is heavy enough to support powered devices in your home.  He adds that eliminating clutter around your house and fireplaces can reduce the chance of a fire starting and spreading quickly.  You can find a list of tips on home fire prevention and safety here.
