4th of July Fire Safety

6/30/2022 (Permalink)

With Independence Day on its way, many communities look forward to celebrating the USA's freedom with a bang! Literally. While fireworks are a fun way to show some national pride, they can be extremely dangerous to homes and businesses, especially in wooded areas.  

Whether you are in your backyard or at a local show, here are some tips from the US Forest Service on what to do if a fire flares up near you:

  • Remain calm. 
  • Move flammable materials such as wood to a safe place away from the house. 
  • Close the garage door, but leave it unlocked (an electric door may need to be disconnected from the power source to move manually).
  • Open the entrance of your yard to facilitate the access of the firefighters and vehicles. 
  • Shut off any fuel tanks and gas cylinders. 
  • Close all exterior vents, exterior doors (do not lock them), and windows. 
  • Make sure all garden hoses connect to a faucet with a nozzle set on SPRAY.
  • Do a headcount to make sure that all family members are safe and accounted for 

Enjoy your 4th of July weekend and call SERVPRO of Greensburg at (724) 837-8830 for any smoke, water, or fire damage cleanup!
