It is nearly wild fire season, and while not all of us live near the wild fire affected areas, fire safety is still an important aspect in all residence, especially for seniors. So here are some tips for seniors when it comes to staying safe from a fire. Smoke detectors double the chance of survival in a fire because it gives early warning. As a result, it is vital to have them installed as well as maintained. For seniors who are unable to install it themselves, seek help from friends, family, or even neighbors to provide assistance. Cooking often require a fire, so the kitchen often become a high danger zone for fire. If one must leave the kitchen while cooking, despite the inconvenience, turn off the fire to be safe. Lastly, do NOT use the elevator to escape fire. These may seem like simple tips, but can easily improve your chances of survival if the unfortunate event occurs.
