Fire Safety Week: Tips For Keeping Your Kids And Home Safe
Fire safety week, also known as fire prevention week, is always the first full week in October.
Since I've personally known several families whose homes have burned to the ground, plus professionally as an attorney (I no longer practice, but did for several years) I represented many additional clients dealing with the insurance company after such incidents occur I know this happens much more often than we'd like to believe.
Fire is an important safety issue in every home, so I've created a series about the most important fire safety issues for kids and our homes as a refresher course for some, but also a way for us all to learn more about this issue.
Do You Know The Most Common Causes Of Fire In Your Home?

Fire Safety Week Tips For Heating
Heating your home is a necessity in the winter months, but you want to do so safely.
Here are some tips to help you keep your home safe and warm:
Fire Safety Tips For Electricity
Electricity is one of the wonders of the modern world, but it can be dangerous if not used properly. Here are some tips for safe use of electricity as part of fire safety week.
Fire Safety Tip To Prevent Fires From Smoking
This tip is easy and obvious -- don't smoke. It is bad for your health, the health of the people around you, and can be dangerous in regard to accidentally setting fires.
In addition, children have a hard time understanding that matches and lighters are not toys, so keep them out of children's reach if you must smoke.
