Are you looking to make a New Year’s resolution that you are actually going to keep this year? You could try and convince yourself that you’re really going to get up early every morning to go to the gym—or you could go with something more realistic and make fire safety more of a priority for you and your family. Here are a few simple New Year’s resolutions you can make heading into 2018:
“I will test my fire alarms once every month.”
You should test your fire alarms at least once every six months. Nevertheless, it won’t hurt to test them a lot more often than that. It could alert you to the fact that you need new batteries or that your fire alarm isn’t working. Whatever the case, it’s easy to commit to testing your fire alarms more, and it will make your home a lot safer overall.
“I will be safer when I cook.”
Cooking is one of the biggest fire risks inside of a home. Far too often, people leave a hot stove unattended for a few minutes or get distracted when cooking and allow a fire to start. That fire can then be difficult to put out. By committing to being safer when you cook in 2018, you can cut down on the chances of a fire breaking out in your home.
“I will talk to my kids about fire safety more regularly.”
Hopefully, you are already spending some time during the year speaking with your kids about fire safety. However,why not do it more? In 2018, you should make it your mission to talk to your kids about fire safety every so often. It could really pay off if a fire ever takes place in your home.
