Summer Fires Safety Tips in Framingham
In the summer months, many fires are caused for various reasons. People grill outdoors in the summer for family gatherings, and celebrations.
Grill fires: Fires from grills happen when someone mishandles the igniting of the grill, such as coals, charcoals, or ashes.
Make sure you are in a grill-friendly environment: You will want to be free of branches, roofs, or any sort of overhang to help prevent a fire.
Air Conditioning Fires: Inadequate wiring can cause a fire because of electrical malfunctions. If your AC heats up, any flammable materials near your unit can catch on fire.
Smoking Fires: Smoking fires are common throughout the year; they are the leading cause of fatal fires. If you’re outside, be careful when smoking. Make sure to keep cigarettes off the ground and they are properly put out before throwing them on the ground.
Summer is a time to enjoy the outdoors, and have plenty of gatherings. The weather isn’t the only thing that heats up during these few months; be aware of the risk of fires.
