With a well thought out preparedness plan, you can be ready for disasters ranging from unexpected short term unemployment to catastrophic events, so focus on the fundamentals and you’ll be ready
Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 31, 2011
Lamplighter Publishing, LLC, the leader in urban survival, wants to spread the word that October is Fire Safety Month. According to the Fire Protection Association, almost 400,000 homes burn down each year. Many fires can be avoided with the proper precautions.
David Morris, an expert in disaster preparedness, said in a statement that “fire disaster preparation is one of the most overlooked hazards plaguing modern society. People think they’re immune to fire because they have a fire alarm, but they don’t realize that they can be quickly overwhelmed by a fire in the home.” David recommends calling the fire department for any fire situation whether large or small, making sure the correct fire extinguisher is selected in case of fire, and following an evacuation plan.
David also states that “prevention is the key when it comes to firefighting.” Suggesting that people know where the fire extinguishers are kept, and that they take preventative steps by doing such things as “keeping storage and working areas free of trash,” not overloading wall outlets, and repairing old wiring, worn insulation and broken electrical fittings immediately.

David Morris recommends not only preparing for fire, but preparing for any possible disaster. David says, “With a well thought out preparedness plan, you can be ready for disasters ranging from unexpected short term unemployment to short term natural disasters to catastrophic events like a collapse of the dollar, so focus on the fundamentals and you’ll be ready for WHATEVER disaster happens.”
