The Importance of Fire Extinguishers During the Holidays (and EVERY day!)
  Fire safety tips from Monte Hewett HomesMany of you may have heard the sad story of the fire that destroyed a beautiful home near Chastain Park a few nights ago. It may have started due to a lit candle on the deck of the home (the cause is still under investigation). Luckily no one was injured, but the brand new home was destroyed.

This tragic event should remind us all about how VITAL it is to have portable fire extinguishers on EVERY floor of your home, in easily accessible places. It is also essential to make sure EVERY member of your family knows where they are kept. A portable fire extinguisher is arguably one of the best and cost-effective defenses against property damage from a fire. When used properly, portable fire extinguishers can save your life and home by putting out small fire or containing one until the fire department arrives.
