Top Tips for Fire Safety

    This weekend I was headed to preview a property for an out of town client. (very common for Griffin Group agents to view property for out of town buyers). I arrived at the condominium community gate full of red and blue flashing lights. Fire trucks and police cars.  Needless to say, I was unable to preview the condo for my client.

    It does make one pause and reflect. What would I have done in case of fire?

    Top Tips for Fire Safety***

    • Install smoke alarms on every level of your home, inside bedrooms and outside sleeping areas.
    • Test smoke alarms every month. If they’re not working, change the batteries.
    • Talk with all family members about a fire escape plan and practice the plan twice a year.
    • If a fire occurs in your home, GET OUT, STAY OUT and CALL FOR HELP. Never go back inside for anything or anyone.

    Does your family have a safety plan?  Have you checked your smoke detector lately?  Make them both a priority today. Stay safe.

    PS Thankfully, I did find out the fire was not the unit I was there to see for my client.
