Cedar Park, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/10/2019 -- AUSTIN, TX—Cool Experts is observing October's National Fire Prevention Month by stressing the importance of HVAC safety and home escape plans. This year's National Fire Protection Association campaign theme, "Not Everyone Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape," reminds all ages that heroic home fire prevention starts with awareness and planning.
National Fire Prevention Week (Oct. 6-12) was established by the NFPA to commemorate the Great Chicago fire of 1871. Today, this organization spends the month of October teaching home and business owners to minimize fire danger, create fire escape plans and teach kids about fire risks.
Cool Experts Shares Tips From the Fire Prevention Experts
Cool Experts prioritizes the safety of customers and communities. To protect homes and people from fire danger, the home comfort specialists urge families to implement simple steps such as these:
Develop an escape plan and establish a safe outdoor meeting place for occupants. When fires break out, there is no time to lose. Homeowners should prepare in advance by creating and practicing fire escape strategies. The NFPA says the ability to safely get out of the house depends on properly functioning smoke detectors plus escape planning. Visit the NFPA site for downloadable escape plan grids, fire prevention tips and children's education materials.
Never neglect heating repairs in Round Rock, TX. It's easy to back-burner heating service when it's forever-summer in the Austin area, but wiring issues or heat exchanger leaks can't wait. With the help of a trained professional, schedule heating maintenance and timely repairs to minimize the chance of fire danger, carbon monoxide poisoning or furnace-related injuries.
Install and properly maintain home smoke detectors. Three of every five house fire deaths occur in homes without functioning smoke alarms, according to the NFPA. Install alarms on every floor of the home and in every bedroom, and test them once per month. Change batteries annually at a minimum. Some professionals recommend residents coordinate battery changes with time changes, as a reminder. After a decade, or when moving into a new home, install new smoke alarms. The non-replaceable lithium-ion batteries in today's 10-year sealed battery smoke detectors prevent the worry of battery changes.
