We never want to think about the unthinkable, but the possibility of a fire emergency is something that we all need to be concerned about and aware of. Make sure that your provided smoke detector is continually on and properly working. Test the alarm once a month; if you hear a constant beep from the alarm, it may need a fresh battery. Know the location of fire extinguishers both in your home and throughout the complex. Review emergency diagrams, be aware of alarm boxes, and take note of all emergency exits within the complex. Go over and discuss emergency procedures with your family or roommates. In the long run, it’s wiser to think ahead about the unthinkable, before it could possibly happen.
