During Thanksgiving, as families gather and cooking takes place, you want to ensure that your alarms are ready for any outcome. This is because anything can happen at any time during your Thanksgiving activities. So you want to get prepared by installing a fire alarm system that can help you alert the authorities in time if anything happens. Here are tips to prepare for fire outbreaks.

Plan, Practice, and Prepare

It’s always a good idea to inform your own family members about the available escape routes they can use in case of a fire outbreak, especially during the Holidays. Ensure you have fully charged fire extinguishers with rope ladders so that anyone who is upstairs can quickly get out during a fire. Also, remember to designate a meeting place after leaving the house to determine if everyone is out of danger.

Install Carbon Monoxide Detectors

Carbon monoxide is an odorless and poisonous gas that can cause death. Some appliances such as stoves, water heaters, faulty heaters, dryers, creosote-clogged fireplace flues, and gas furnaces are the leading sources of carbon monoxide.

During Thanksgiving, you may be too busy to realize that there is carbon monoxide gas in your home. It is best to invest in carbon monoxide detectors to sniff the air and detect odorless and odorless gas. Then, it gets easier for you to alert those around your home about the danger.

ProTec is an expert in carbon dioxide detectors. We have both hardwired and wireless carbon monoxide detectors to help you stay alert if carbon monoxide gas is in your home.

Invest in a Monitored Fire Alarm System

When distracted by the preparation and cooking, you might not notice a fire starting within the house. Unfortunately, your family members could be at risk if this happens since you might not get out of the home safely. However, if you have smoke and heat detectors, you have the opportunity to be alerted in time, enabling you to call for help.
