NOTICE: Safety Tips to Be Ready.
Cooking is the leading cause of building fires in Grapevine. When you cook, do not leave cooking unattended. Set a minute timer to peridically check your cooking for 10-15 minute intervals. Always ensure your fire or heat is off if you have to leave. We recommend you procure a stove top fire suppression device for residential use. You can find these online under various names.
Working smoke alarms are required in all new homes and older homes should have them installed. Besides fire sprinklers, smoke alarms offer one of the best chances to escape a fire in you home. Plan now, test it monthly, replace any batteries when the time changes.
