Protect Your Home From Fire
Dated: November 2 2015
Avoidable house fires are on the rise. Here is a simple stepthat could save your home, your possessions and the lives of those you carefor.
We all have a junk drawer in our home. It is a drawer thatseems to catch all the small objects that we just don’t want to see on thecounter. For most, it is gone through often either in search of something or tosimply clean it out. Do you know what is in your junk drawer? Is one or morebatteries there?
Having unprotected batteries in a drawer can and does easilycause a fire. The prongs or ends can come in contact with a metal item andpaper. The prongs will act as a conductor for the battery current and the paperwill be its fuel.
How can you prevent such mishaps? You can make sure youstore batteries in the packaging they come in. You can also place a strip ofelectrical tape across the battery prongs (ie. 9 volt) or the positive andnegative connections.
Be sure you check all your multi-purpose drawers. Don’tforget the garage and workshop!
