Fire Safety for Kids

Keep children safe from danger!

Have and practice an escape plan

It is important to have a plan when there are children in the home. Children sometimes need help getting out of the house, and they may not know how to escape or what to do unless an adult shows them.

Have a plan for young children who cannot get outside by themselves

You will need to wake babies and very young children and help them get out. In your plan, talk about who will help each child get out safely.

Know 2 ways out of every room

It is important to find 2 ways out of every room in the house in case one exit is blocked or dangerous to use.

Practice your fire escape plan at least twice a year

If children are old enough, help them practice going to your outside meeting place. Teach them to never go back inside a building that is on fire.

Keep our number handy in case of an emergency. We are available 24/7. Call SERVPRO of St. Clair Shores (586) 741-5050

Thunderstorm Season is Coming. Are you Ready?

Storm Damage Thunderstorm Season is Coming. Are you Ready? Thunderstorm Season in Roseville, MI

Under the right conditions, rainfall from thunderstorms can cause flash flooding. Lightning is responsible for many fires around the world each year, and causes fatalities. Hail up to the size of softballs damages cars and windows, and kills livestock caught out in the open. Strong (up to more than 120 mph) straight-line winds associated with thunderstorms knock down trees, power lines and mobile homes. Tornadoes (with winds up to about 300 mph) can destroy all but the best-built man-made structures.

Storm and flood damage require specialized restoration techniques and equipment. When a storm hits your St Clair Shores home, you need the company with storm damage experience and expertise. SERVPRO of St. Clair Shores can respond immediately to storm and flooding conditions. Keep our number handy in case of an emergency (586) 741-5050.

  • If you are in a building with no basement, then get to a small interior room on the lowest level.
  • Stay away from windows, doors, and outside walls.
  • Do not get under an overpass or bridge. You’re safer in a low, flat location.
  • Watch out for flying debris that can cause injury or death.
  • Use your arms to protect your head and neck.
  • Keep listening to EAS, NOAA Weather Radio, and local authorities for updated information.
  • If you are trapped, cover your mouth with a cloth or mask to avoid breathing dust.

  • Stay clear of fallen power lines or broken utility lines.
