Back To School, Fire Safety 101
Kitchen fires account for the majority of residential fires across the country and in September, when the kids go off to college, many will stay in 'apartment-style' dorm rooms. These dorms feature private bathrooms, common living spaces and sometimes a common kitchen. In these living conditions, the chances of a fire in the kitchen increase dramatically, not just because younger people might not always be the most experienced cooks, but because there are several kitchens throughout the building. If your children are heading off to college for the first time remind them to cautious and aware of the potential for a kitchen. Also, check to see that their kitchen is equipped with a working fire extinguisher. Of course, if there is damage from a fire in your building we can help. We are prepared to restore large properties, like dorm rooms and apartment complexes, after fire, water, soot and smoke damage.
