Fire It is important to be prepared in case of a fire.

SERVPRO of Evanston knows that a fire can be stressful for homeowners. We also know that timely response and thorough mitigation can alleviate the concerns that come with a fire. 

Here’s what you can do to be prepared in case of a fire: 

  • Install the right number of smoke alarms. Test them once a month and replace the batteries at least once a year.        
  • Teach children what smoke alarms sound like and what to do when they hear one. 
  • Ensure that all household members know two ways to escape from every room of your home and know the family meeting spot outside of your home.
  • Establish a family emergency communications plan and ensure that all household members know who to contact if they cannot find one another.
  • Practice escaping from your home at least twice a year. Press the smoke alarm test button or yell “Fire“ to alert everyone that they must get out.
  • Make sure everyone knows how to call 9-1-1.
  • Teach household members to STOP, DROP and ROLL if their clothes should catch on fire. 

When disaster strikes, call SERVPRO of Evanston at 847-763-7010.
