Well this week is Fire Prevention Week. Did you know that during 2006, an estimated 17,700 reported U.S. non-confined or confined home structure fires involving clothes dryers or washing machines resulted in 15 civilian deaths, 360 civilian injuries and $194 million in direct property damage. That’s pretty amazing when you stop and think about it. Home fires are something we take for granted every day. The sad part is no one stops to think what they can do to prevent them. Some times the answers are simple.

Fact; The leading cause of home clothes dryer fires is the failure to clean them. Pretty simple solution to avoid a catastrophe wouldn’t you say.

The great news is, there is a national organization whose website has all the information you will need to help you prevent a disaster. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) has a great web site to aid you in preventing fires. The NFPA has information on every thing you need to know about safe guarding your home from fire. They even have guides to help you teach your children.

Like the Boy Scout motto says, “Be Prepared”
