As an insurance provider, Community Insurance & Associates is focused on encouraging safety and personal well-being in Central Wisconsin. As a way for us to recognize National Safety Month, we would like to focus on the importance of fire safety and remind you of the simple ways you can make your home a safe place. According to the U.S. Fire Administration, approximately 3,400 Americans dies from fires each year. However, with proper safety standards, we could potentially cut down this number.
In order to keep your home safe, every home should have at LEAST one working smoke alarm. Having a smoke alarm is one of the most inexpensive fire protection tools. You should also consider installing affordable home sprinklers—having home sprinklers can also save you money on insurance. Always remember to keep portable heaters at least 3 feet away from anything combustible. These are just a few of the many suggestions you can try in order to keep your home safe.
Another important key to fire protection is to always have a planned escape from every room in your house. Get your family together and discuss a location where everyone can meet up after escaping the house.
When the fire department is called, firefighters rush to the scene in order to help put out the fire. As a way to repay these hard working individuals, we offer great auto insurance discounts for volunteer firefighters and EMS/EMT providers. On top of our already competitive pricing, these discounts will allow these individuals to save big on their auto insurance policies. Feel free to call any of our agents today for a free quote.
