Are You Prepared to Combat Fire Damage in Hackettstown, NJ?

When the worst happens, ServiceMaster Metropolitan provides fire restoration services in Hackettstown, Jersey City, Hamburg, Livingston, and Mahwah, NJ

October is National Fire Prevention Month, sponsored by both the National Fire Protection Agency and the Boy Scouts of America. Though this month may seem like a bizarre month to observe the event, it is actually great timing. With jack-o-lanterns lighting up, furnaces firing up, and holiday lights gearing up, the risk for fire damage increases greatly in the upcoming months. Are you prepared in the case of a fire in your home? If not, you might find yourself looking for fire restoration in Hackettstown, NJ. Don’t fret; just call ServiceMaster Metropolitan!

How does one observe National Fire Prevention Month? It’s a lot simpler than you might imagine! Your safety is the #1 priority, so making sure there is a definitive fire escape plan is the first step.

  • Make sure everyone in the home knows where escape routes are located.
  • If there are infants or young children, assign an adult or older child to assist them in case of a fire.
  • Choose a meeting place a safe distance away from your home.
  • Memorize the phone number for emergency services.
  • Once out of the building, stay out! Leave the rescuing to the firefighters.

You should practice your fire escape plan at least twice a year. When you test your smoke alarms on Daylight Savings would be the perfect time to also practice your plan and make any necessary adjustments.

What about your belongings though? Remember: your life is more important than any worldly possession. Instead of scrounging for items you couldn’t bear to lose, consider investing in a fire proof box. Then you can store your most important documents (insurance policies, birth records, passports, social security cards) as well as documentation of recent renovations and additions and valuables in an easily accessible and safe place. This information will be extremely helpful in filing a claim to begin the fire restoration process.

As you are gathering documents, be sure to include a business card for ServiceMaster Metropolitan. We provide fire restoration for Hackettstown, Jersey City, Hamburg, Livingston, and Mahwah, NJ, as well as smoke, soot, and odor removal.

By being prepared, you can help prevent or limit the damage of a house fire. When the unthinkable happens though, you need only call ServiceMaster Metropolitan. Our fire restoration technicians will be dispatched as quickly as possible, 24/7/365. Don’t wait one minute to start reclaiming your home. Call us as soon as the flames are extinguished!
