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.
