We'd Rather Not Visit

No offense, but we'd rather not visit your house some evening--or some day for that matter. And there's a lot you can do to ensure that doesn't ever happen. By following safe practices and common sense you'll protect yourself and your loved ones from harm. 90% of fire protection is fire prevention.

We've put together some easy-to-follow tips to help keep your home or workplace safe. There's also a special fun page for kids. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.

We're available for home-safety surveys--just arrange a convenient time and we'll send one of our professionally-trained staff to your house to answer questions, review safe practices, and identify any potential hazards in your home.

That's the kind of visit we're happy to make.

General Emergency Planning

While you can greatly reduce the risk of fire in your home or workplace, you should still be prepared for what to do if one happens. In fact, it's important to take some time now to prepare for other potential disasters such as floods or winter storms--it may mean the difference between life and death.
