Today marks the last day of the year for 2014, that means that it is time for you and your family to come up with new emergency plans! What do we mean by “emergency plans”?  Every year, you should either practice your old plans, or come up with a new updated plan for hurricane evacuation and house fire escape route and meeting point. You should also update your first aid kits in your home and car, as well as your emergency preparedness kits. Having these plans set in stone from the start of the year will give your family comfort knowing that they are prepared and minimizes confusion and fear if an event were to take place.

Hurricane Evacuation Route

 

Pensacola is located smack dab in the middle of hurricane alley, which means during hurricane season we must be prepared at all times. Being prepared starts with having a proper hurricane evacuation route in case evacuation is needed.  Hurricane conditions can cause a threat to our area in as little as 48 hours, which is not very long to prepare. That is why you must get it done ahead of time, start with these simple steps.

  1. Make sure to have meeting points inside and outside of your neighborhood.
  2. Listen to a battery powered radio for evacuation instructions.
  3. Bring your emergency preparedness kit with you.
  4. Time allowing, leave early enough to avoid running into severe weather.
  5. Although a shortcut may seem like a good idea, don’t take them. Those roads may be blocked off and can delay your evacuation.
  6. Don’t leave your pets behind, but be aware that service animals may only be allowed into public shelters.

Fireplaces are known mostly for their use for comfort, heat and relaxation in a home.  And quite honestly, the last thing you are probably thinking about is the risk of a house fire when you’re getting ready to enjoy a quiet evening at home with your loved ones. These types of fires occur more often than you would think due to just a few minor details that often get neglected or forgotten about. Complete DKI has some tips on preventing a fire with just a few, simple precautions that need to be taken before igniting a fire in your fireplace. All home heating systems (whether it be a fireplace, a wooden stove, or an elemental heater) need regular maintenance to keep them in solid working condition. Safety is a huge precaution when it comes to preventing a fire. By following these simple tips you can greatly reduce your chances of suffering from a house fire.

  • Have a certified chimney specialist inspect and clean your chimney or wood stove annually.
  • Keep the area around the fireplace free of anything flammable or vulnerable to catching fire. (This means no hanging stockings around the fire place when there is a fire lit!)
  • NEVER use flammables such as lighter fluid or any other chemical to start a fire in a home.
  • Make sure the logs are securely placed inside the fire place and aren’t at risk of rolling out onto the floor.
  • Never leave the fire unattended. Too often homeowners will go to bed before the fire has completely burned out. This is a huge no no!
  • Do not burn any trash or newspaper as an aid to get the fire started. This can cause too much smoke to go around your home.
  • Make sure that there is nothing obstructing the vents to your fireplace.
  • Lastly, make sure that your heating systems have proper means of ventilation. General rule of thumb is that your heating equipment is at least 3 feet above the roof.

Every year, about 26,000 fires are caused due to improper use of a fireplace. Homeowners should be properly informed about safety while using a fire place is very important in order to prevent a house or chimney fire. Complete DKI responds to house fires year round, not just in the winter months when everyone has their heaters and fireplaces going.
