Fire Safety for Elderly Populations in Eastpointe?
Do you have a fire safety plan for older adults in your Eastpointe household? Our team in St. Clair Shores offers these safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association:
- Sound the alarm
If anyone in your household is deaf or if your hearing is diminished, consider installing a smoke alarm that uses a flashing light or vibration to alert you to a fire emergency. View a list of product manufacturers.
- Do the drill
Conduct your own, or participate in, regular fire drills to make sure you know what to do in the event of a home fire. If you or someone you live with cannot escape alone, designate a household member to assist and decide on backups in case the designee isn't home.
- Open up
Make sure you can open all doors and windows in your home. Locks and pins should open easily from the inside. Check to be sure that windows haven't been sealed shut with paint or nailed shut; if they have, arrange for someone to break the seals all around your home or remove the nails.
- Stay connected
Keep a telephone nearby and emergency phone numbers so that you can communicate with emergency personnel if you're trapped in your room by fire or smoke.
