Home Fire In Windsor Locks, CT

television burned, melting tv, house fire in windsor locks, servpor of the windsor, charred wall` Here's the television that caused the fire! Scary! Luckily no one was injured.

Working in this industry makes you a little more receptive to an emergency plan, Like the ambulance worker who never goes without a seatbelt because of what they’ve seen, we are especially cautious when it comes to home threats and property damage.

However, even with heightened awareness there are always weird and unpredictable incidents. This week our team received another unique fire loss. A home in Windsor suffered a home fire caused television which went up in flames while our customer was in their bed fast asleep. 

As a mother, I’ve thought long and hard about how careful we are to mind our children. In the home we are mindful to the threats in the kitchen, around pools, or electrical sockets, etc., but a television catching fire and then the fire spreading throughout the home?! Who could ever anticipate that? The tv was an anomaly; so how can one possibly be prepared for a scenario like this?  The frightening truth is there are not much proactive measures you can take other than to make sure your electronics are in functioning condition and the wires are intact.

Unfortunately, we cannot anticipate every threat so prepare your family with an emergency response plan.  Be prepared to respond; have a plan of action.  Talk to your little ones today, have a meeting point, and an emergency escape plan that you and your family practice at least once a year, if possible, twice!  Make sure your children know emergency numbers and when and why to dial 911, have fire extinguishers and alarms functioning in place throughout the home that you test regularly.  Be well friends!
