Placentia, CA (PRWEB) April 18, 2013
According to the National Fire Protection Association, an estimated 15,500 people across the country reported fires being started at home due to fireworks. In the state of California, since the purchase of fireworks is legal, many residents set them off for entertainment and enjoyment during a nice night. However, it is very possible for the lighting of one to go terribly wrong, resulting in an explosion or fire. At Paul Kinan Insurance Agency, the last thing the team wants to happen is for local residents to have to evacuate and suffer financial loss due to lack of preparation for home explosions.
The agents at Paul Kinan Insurance Agency make every effort to understand the insurance needs of the community in order to protect them thoroughly. When it comes to explosions at home, they want to make it clear that this phenomenon can happen to anyone, anywhere, and at any time. Some common causes include gas leaks, malfunctioning gas grills, combustible products left unattended, and of course, fireworks. Safety comes first, which is why Paul Kinan Insurance Agency is providing homeowners with tips to prevent explosions and avoid injuries and accidents:
- Regularly check gas pipes for leaks or damage.
- Install natural gas detectors within the home and also regularly test them.
- Maintain gas appliances efficiently and have them checked by professionals if necessary.
- Install smoke alarms on each level to indicate when a fire is occurring.
- Do not place extension cords under rugs or carpets.
- Have old wiring inspected and replaced if necessary.
- Go over an escape plan in case of a fire or explosion and practice it.
- If a gas leak does occur, leave the property immediately.
