Fire Safety Tips For Keeping Your Home & Family Safe
Here are lots of practical fire safety tips to help keep your home and your family safe from fires, including in the kitchen, electrical, and heating fires.
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 that home fires happens much more often than we'd like to believe.
