Take these necessary steps to avoid fire accidents They say, unpreparedness is one’s greatest enemy and negligence is the cause of failure. And when it comes to our safety at our very own homes, “unpreparedness and negligence” should not be in our vocabulary. Our homes are our safest haven, and we should take the necessary steps to fireproof at all costs. A residential garage is a roofed structure that is mostly attached to the main house. Although, there have been a growing number of houses that are designed to keep the garage detached, and this is recommended more for fire safety. A car at minimum sits securely inside the garage. However, in recent years, many have converted the garage space as multi-use. It is now a place for woodworking, painting, storage, entertainment, or even starting a multi-million dollar company (think Apple, Microsoft, Disney, Amazon). But for many of us, while waiting for the multi-billion dollar idea, our garage has been a home to flammable and hazardous materials. We often cannot control the fire once it has already started to raze, especially when you live in California, where forest fires have been rampant lately. But what you can control is to fireproof your place as to buy time to limit, extinguish the fire, or evacuate and keep yourselves and loved ones safe.
