How To Have A Fire Free Fall 

We are officially in the fall season! Which means we are in for cooler weather, beautiful colors, and a plethora of outdoor activities. With the temperature going down, SERVPRO of South Greenville County begins to see a rise in fires. Be sure to plan ahead this fall season to ensure its fire-free. Below are a few tips you can use to make sure you have a fire-free fall.

Highly flammable fall decorations, like dried flowers, cornstalks, and other decorations should be kept away from open flames and heat sources, including lightbulbs and heaters. Remember emergency exits should be clear of decorations, so nothing blocks escape routes. Children should be taught to stay away from open flames. Teach them how to stop, drop, and roll if their clothing catches fire. Remember safety first when choosing a Halloween costume. Avoid billowing fabric as it can easily ignite. If you are making a costume, choose a material that is flame-retardant. Use a flashlight or battery-operated candle in jack-o-lanterns. Lit pumpkins should be kept away from anything that can burn and out of the way from doorsteps, walkways, and yards.
