At Park Canyon Apartments, we want our residents to not only enjoy living in their apartment home, but stay safe as well from the unexpected.  This is why we want to provide you with valuable fire safety tips.

The first place to start is to learn the facts:

  • Smoking is the #1 cause of all fatal apartment fires.  And, nearly a third of them are caused by someone smoking in bed.
  • Most residential fires occur at night when apartments are most heavily populated.

Be prepared and fire safe your apartment home:

  • Be careful with smoking materials.  Never smoke in bed.
  • Keep matches and lighters out of reach of children.
  • Check regularly for electrical hazards, such as worn electrical cords, overloaded extension cords and outlets, and broken appliances.
  • Don’t store flammable liquids in your home, car or anywhere else in your building
  • Don’t use balconies or porches for storage.  Fires starting in this area can burn undetected.
  • Make sure your smoke detectors are working.
  • Plan your escape route in case of fire.

Remember, by keeping your apartment fire safe, you are not only protecting yourself, but your neighbors as well.
