October is Fire Prevention Safety Month!

October is National Fire Prevention Month, a time when we should all be aware of ways to help learn fire safety and prevention. According to Department of Homeland Security Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Acting Regional Director Dennis Hunsinger, most Americans underestimate their risk for fire, and many either lack emergency response plans – or fail to practice them with fire drills.

Annual observances like National Fire Prevention Week and National Fire Prevention Month are excellent opportunities to focus on fire hazards – but we should all practice fire safety every day—at home, at work and at play.

The NFPA offers a wealth of safety information, fire prevention tips and resources on their comprehensive website: www.nfpa.org. And I encourage everyone to contact your local fire department to learn more about making your home safer from fire, or how you can best participate in fire prevention activities.

Here at MagVent, LLC, we will be providing various tips, guidelines, and information on how to keep your home and family safe. A MagVent product, a properly designed duct system, and routine cleaning are the solutions to boost dryer efficiency and save energy and space, as well as keeping your home safe from dryer fires that begin in the laundry room. We are always here to assist our customers, so if you have any questions or comments on our products or fire safety, please don’t hesitate to contact us by email at customerservice@magventllc.com, or give us a call at 1-888-960-7484!
