The forth most likely cause of a house fire is “electrical equipment”.  There is  a substantial amount of power supplied through the cord to equipment in a house.  Substantially more power than is needed to start a fire.  To reduce the risk of a house fire follow the below listed suggestions:

1)  Make certain that all of your electrical appliances do not have a loose or frayed cord.  This includes everything from an oven or clothes dryer to a simple lamp.

2)  Make certain that your outlets are not overloaded with plugs.

3) Make certain that none of your cords are under rugs or heavy furniture.

4) Make certain that you are not overusing an extension cord.

Take the time to properly set up power usage in your home, and be careful.

On a side note, Fleet industries is now fine tuning our supplies of mini-bars with LED’s.  We will soon be adding a bar from Feniex.  It is less than 1″ tall.  We are excited and hope that this will become a favorite with our customers.  In the mean time, please look at our website at www.fleet-strobe.com

3 Forklift Safety Products

3

  1. Fuel: Always have a full tank when operating a forklift. While you may be a skilled driver, you’re not going to be able to haul anything without it. Even if it’s halfway full, top it off, you’ll avoid forgetting and potentially running on reserves.
  2. Check your surroundings: Before taking off, look around, make sure there is nothing in your perimeter that can equal danger. This way, you limit accidents.
  3. Lights: If you plan to operate your lift in a warehouse or during late hours, make sure you are properly illuminated. Adding a strobe light to your forklift is best for signaling other workers of your presence throughout the warehouse.

Would you like to add strobe lights to your forklift? Fleet Industries offers quality strobe and LED lights for them, perfect for keeping your warehouse, your products, and your workers safe.

3rd and a half leading cause of house fires

Last week I wrote a bit about the dangers of smoking. I was trying to be careful and not offend people who smoke. This week I would like to be a bit more honest.

I have been an EMT for over 10 years. I worked my way from first responder, to EMT-1 to EMT-2 to EMT-3 to EMT-4 or paramedic. I was a paramedic for 3 years. I have watched many people suffer from emphysema and chronic bronchitis, or both combined known as COPD (constructive obstructive pulmonary disease) both caused primarily by smoking and/or a hazardous environment (especially common in developing countries caused by cooking over an open fire with certain fuels). I have watched people die from lung cancer.

The following information is from the Center for Disease Control website:
http://www.cdc.gov/tobacco/data_statistics/fact_sheets/health_effects/effects_cig_smoking/

Smoking is the leading preventable cause of death in the United States.
Cigarette smoking causes more than 480,000 deaths each year in the United States. This is about one in five deaths.
Smoking causes more deaths each year than all of these combined:
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), Illegal drug use, Alcohol use, Motor vehicle injuries, Firearm-related incidents
More than 10 times as many U.S. citizens have died prematurely from cigarette smoking than have died in all the wars fought by the United States during its history.
Smoking causes about 90% (or 9 out of 10) of all lung cancer deaths in men and women. More women die from lung cancer each year than from breast cancer.
About 80% (or 8 out of 10) of all deaths from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are caused by smoking.
Cigarette smoking increases risk for death from all causes in men and women.

Please don’t smoke around you friends or children. Please don’t smoke.
PS. Please don’t start fires with careless smoking.

3rd leading cause of house fires

Smoking is a tough habit. It is tough on the smoker, and those around the smoker. Just this morning I drove past a building with a smoker outside the building taking a cigarette break. It is not as easy to be a smoker as it was even 10 years ago. On top of the cost and inconvenience, smoking is the third leading cause of house fires.

Several ways to minimize the risk of house fires with smoking:
1) No smoking in bed/bedroom.
2) Supervise smokers who may become drowsy (on medications, prescriptions or otherwise, and/or drinking).
3) Be aware of any smoker who may have forgotten to extinguish their cigarette.
4) Use large and deep ashtrays not placed near anything that will burn.
5) Check furniture used by a smoker for fallen cigarettes/embers, a butt can smoulder for several hours before causing the furniture to burst into flames.

On a separate note, we sell strobe lights to improve the safety of drivers on/off the road. Stopping someone from smoking might save a life as well as a strobe light will. Please consider quitting smoking if you smoke. Do yourself this favor, and everyone around you.

On a very different note, we also have our SC20-400-C61 strobe lights for use with forklifts and similar machines  (the same use as the SC25-400-C61). This light is shown on our website at http://www.fleet-strobe.com/strobes/SC20-400-C61.htm    We have been selling this light for 18 years with excellent success and feedback from customers  on the cost and reliability. Please look at this light and give us an opportunity to provide these lights.

2nd leading cause of house fires.

Fire Safety 001

In a continuation of the recent comments on a local fire, I wanted to point out the second leading cause of house fires.

The second leading cause of house fires is Heating Equipment.  This would include a furnace, boiler, wood/coal stove, or portable heating system.

Please consider the following a minimal list to safely heat a house.

1. Have the furnace inspected annually by a certified technician.

2.  Keep any chimney clean and annually inspected.

3.  Keep portable heaters at least one meter or 39″ away from anything that can burn, and don’t use your heaters to dry clothes or shoes.

4.  Install and maintain a carbon monoxide detector.  Carbon monoxide is odorless and colorless.  You can not see carbon monoxide (CO).  But carbon monoxide can kill you.  Be careful.

On a side note, we just received a shipment of SC25-400-C61 strobe, designed for a forklift.  These are excellent, inexpensive lights.  Please see our website http://www.fleet-strobe.com/strobes/SC25-400-C61.htm  for specific information and pricing.
