For 30 years, Craftsman Electric has been providing residential and commercial electrical services to customers in the Cincinnati, OH region. The professional electrical contractors know what it takes to make electrical installation safe and up to code for both homes and office buildings. Here are three tips for fire prevention from the electrician team at Craftsman Electric:

  • Check Batteries In Smoke Alarms: Make sure that you have smoke alarms on all the floors of your house to alert you to fire hazards. Twice a year, check to see that your smoke alarms’ batteries are fresh and that the devices are in working order. Also, remember that most manufacturers recommend you replace your smoke detectors every 10 years.
  • Create An Emergency Plan: Craftsman Electric encourages its customers to have a plan in place for quickly and safely evacuating people and pets from your home in case of a fire. Be sure to practice it every few months, too, so everyone is on the same page in case of an emergency.
  • Be Careful With Open Flames: Whether it’s a candle’s flame or a fire in the fireplace, open flames can be bad news if not tended to carefully. Be sure that you know how to properly extinguish a fire in your fireplace, and remember to blow out all candles before leaving your home or going to bed at night.
