Fires can affect your home and business without warning. Rick Nobles offers solutions for preparing against this type of disaster.
BOWLING GREEN, KENTUCKY, UNITED STATES, January 18, 2019,/EbizNewswire/ — According to the United States Fire Association and FEMA, there were over 1.3 million fires in 2017, resulting in over 23 billion dollars in damages. Most of these fires can be avoided by increasing awareness and safeguarding your home or business with new and updated technology.
Rick Nobles with ProTouch understands how disruptive events like this can be to your family and place of business and will always be there in your time of need, providing professional crews to help you recover throughout the entire process.
One tip Rick Nobles recommend to families and businesses is to test and upgrade your smoke alarms. By properly maintaining your smoke alarms, and testing the batteries once per month, you can be prepared for any situation in case something goes wrong.
According to Nationwide Children’s Hospital, maternal voice smoke alarms are three times more likely and more effective in waking children than conventional tone alarms.
“In my experience, families, and businesses never truly prepare in advance,” explained Rick Nobles. Part of our job is to educate people to take steps now, to ensure their safety if a disaster ever occurs.”
Another tip is to always get your heating sources inspected. An annual inspection can help reduce your risk of fire, and if you ever use a space heater, always inspect it before and after each use and place them at least three feet away from anything that could catch on fire.
Another tip Rick Nobles recommends is always paying attention to your stove and oven and never leaving anything flammable around them. Make sure there isn’t anything hanging above the stove, and that all towels and cookbooks are a safe distance away.
By maintaining your cords, and keeping an eye out for frayed wires can also eliminate a huge risk for fires. Rick Nobles always recommends repairing or replacing the cords that seem to be damaged immediately. Electrical cords can produce heat, so don’t trap them under a rug or between furniture and the wall, as this can lead to fires as well.
In the event that you do experience a fire-related disaster, Rick Nobles and ProTouch are here to help and can access the damage and present you and your family with all of your options including an action plan and communicating with you every step of the way, until everything has been completed.
