4 Fire Prevention Tips From Staten Island Home Insurance Experts, Staten Island, New York

It only takes a few minutes before fire and smoke can completely destroy a home. As space heaters and other heating systems crank up for the cold winter weather, Midland Insurance Agency in Staten Island, NY, wants to share a few tips to prevent dangerous fires while protecting your loved ones.

  • Check Your Smoke Alarms: According to the American Red Cross, 60% of fire deaths occur in homes without working smoke alarms. Test them at least once a month to make sure the batteries are working. Install an alarm on every level of the home. The agents at Midland Insurance Agency offer a range of home insurance with discounts for protective devices.
  • Create An Escape Plan: Design a plan to safely get everyone out of the home. Post it in a high traffic area and have a fire drill at least twice a year. Should your home sustain fire damage, you can count on Midland Insurance Agency to help process your claims quickly and efficiently.
  • Test Windows & Doors: Before an emergency occurs, test your home’s windows and doors to be sure you can safely make your exit during a fire. If you’re not sure what would be covered if your home sustains fire damage, the specialists at Midland Insurance Agency will gladly walk you through the features of your custom policy.
  • Designate A Safe Meeting Place: Select a gathering place outside of the home to ensure everyone is accounted for if a fire occurs. Midland Insurance Agency provides comprehensive homeowners coverage with affordable premiums and deductibles. Ask the professionals about eligibility requirements for discounts.

Being prepared is an important first step should a fire occur in your home. Midland Insurance Agency is your go-to resource to protect you, your family and valuables with insurance policies that provide peace of mind in case disaster strikes your property.
