Fire is nothing to think twice about. It can happen at a moment’s notice and without warning, regardless of how well you’ve strived to make your home as safe as possible. Now we don’t want to scare you or anything, especially since it’s Friday afternoon and we’re all in a good mood for the weekend, but we really want to emphasize how important it is to try and be as fire- conscious as possible.
Obviously, having an open flame item like a grill or stove is an obvious fire risk, as well as faulty wires or candles, but there are a host of other items throughout the home- that you may not think originally think as a fire hazard- that could very well lead to a fire and a CT homeowners insurance claim.
Below is a list of items that could easily start a fire:
Cigarettes and Cigars
As you can see, the risks are pretty much endless and are in every part of your home, apartment, or condo. That’s why being as cautious as possible is priority numero uno! Second, make sure you have an emergency plan in place that you and your family know inside and out in the event of a fire. And third and final- have stellar ct homeowners insurance!
Have a great weekend!
