Below are eight important fire safety tips
#1 Make sure your street number is visible from the street so that public safety personnel can quickly locate your property in case of emergency.
#2 Prevent landscaping from growing over and around fire hydrants. The time it takes to search for a fire hydrant could be critical!
#3 Turn off electrical, including ceiling fans, before leaving your residence for an extended period. Ceiling fan motors can overheat and cause fires if left on for extended periods.
#4 The sale, offering for sale, display, possession or discharge of fireworks by any person or entity within Rancho Mirage is prohibited.
#5 Do not store flammable items near a heat source, such as a hot water heater, as they can combust.
#6 Fire extinguishers should always be kept in the home and checked on an annual basis. Fire extinguishers are a requirement for businesses.
#7 Keep fresh batteries in your smoke detectors by replacing them twice a year. A good reminder is to change them when you set your clocks ahead/back for daylight saving time.
#8 Keep a wrench near your gas shut off valve at all times and consider turning off the gas when you leave your residence for an extended period.
