The team at Roger L. Stevens Insurance Agency, Inc. knows that a good California home insurance policy is the best way for residents who live in high-risk areas to protect their investments from the dangers of ongoing brush fires.
“California has been hit with some catastrophic fires the past few years where hundreds of homes have been destroyed,” said experienced insurance expert Roger Stevens.
However, it’s not only homeowners who have to be concerned about fire damage. Local companies that do not have proper California business insurance risk losing everything that they have worked hard to build. For this reason, Roger L. Stevens Insurance Agency, Inc. offers the following tips on fire safety for both homes and businesses.
- Invest in a dual detection alarm. These are considered the best options because they combine the technology used in both ionization and photoelectric alarms.
- Many homes and offices use natural gas for heating and cooking appliances. However, this substance is highly flammable and can initiate fires without warning if homes or buildings do not have working gas detectors.
- Keep structures at least 100 feet away from brush. This amount of brush clearance should include any flammable vegetation surrounding a home or business.
Most importantly, Roger L. Stevens Insurance Agency, Inc. encourages home and business owners to evacuate their buildings without hesitation. Even small flames in the California hillside can quickly turn into deadly fires. Following these simple steps can help reduce the odds that employers will have to pay costly California workers compensation claims if their employees are injured due to neglected fire safety.
