Be Extra Cautious of Fires During the Holidays
According to the American Red Cross, almost 47,000 fires occur during the winter holidays, costing over $554 million in property damage. We, at SERVPRO of Garden Grove East/ Anaheim Central, recommend that you and your families be extra cautious during this time. Place anything that can catch on fire far away from any candles, fireplaces, portable heaters, radiators, and heat vents. Never leave any holiday lights unattended and remember to unplug them before you go to bed or leave your home. If you plan on deep frying any turkeys, make sure that they are fully thawed and dried before placing them in oil. Always keep deep fryers away from home and 10 feet from any combustibles. It is crucial that you keep a fire extinguisher inside your home at all times and to regularly maintain any fire alarm systems. It’s always best to be prepared and proactive.
