October is National Fire Prevention Month – Be your family’s hero!

By: Denise Koslowsky

October is Fire Prevention Month so we always like to feature a blog that talks about the importance of doing what you can to protect your family against a fire at home.  This year’s theme, Not Every Hero Wears A Cape, celebrates the everyday heroes who take charge and motivate their households to develop and plan an escape route.

When it comes to fire, time is not on your side. We cannot stress that enough…

This is extremely important because when a fire breaks out in your home, every second counts!  One of the best things you can do for your family is to come up with an escape plan that includes two ways out of every room in your home and then to practice your escape.  So, do a little pre-planning then call a family meeting so you can be your family’s hero!

Want to take your new role as hero a step further?

The safety of your family is our number one priority at Advocate Brokerage.  The most important precaution you can take is to have a Central Station Fire Alarm installed in your home.

The advantage of a Central Station Fire Alarm is that when a fire starts in your home the alarm company and the fire department are contacted right away.  The reduction in lag time when a central station fire alarm is installed is dramatic and life saving.  There is no reason to put your family’s life at risk.  Especially when you consider that insurance companies often provide a significant discount for the proper installation of a central station fire and burglar alarm system.

Educating each client we serve is important to us at Advocate Brokerage.  It’s time that you step into your role as family hero!  If you have questions, please get in touch with us at 914-723-7100. We would be happy to help with fire safety resources or recommendations for reputable companies that install Central Station Fire Alarms.
