What to do if a fire happens?
When a fire happens to your home it can make you feel helpless. According to an online poll they estimate that 358,500 home fires occur in the United States every year. When you aren’t prepared for a home fire the aftermath can be even more scary. According to The Red Cross there are four steps to take immediately after a home fire.
- Call 9-1-1. Give first aid where needed; cool and cover burns to reduce the chance of further injury or infection.
- Let friends and family know you’re safe.
- People and animals that are seriously injured or burned should be transported to professional medical or veterinary help immediately.
- Stay out of fire-damaged homes until local fire authorities say it is safe to re-enter.
