Recent Fires A Reminder to Review Insurance Coverage

While a recent string of fires in Pineville and Alexandria this week have led officials to warn Louisiana residents about fire safety and the like, it also serves as a reminder about insurance coverage. Not knowing if your home or property is covered in the event of a fire can lead to, at best, a lot of stress. At worst it can lead to a complete loss in the event of devastation.

Precautionary tips on how to prevent fires in your home or property include:

  • Remain in the kitchen while cooking
  • Keep flammable objects away from cooking surfaces
  • Never leave BBQ grills unattended
  • Keep space heaters 3 feet or more from objects that may burn
  • Never leave a trash or leaf fire unattended
  • Have your chimney or furnace regularly checked and maintained
  • Douse cigarette or cigar butts with water before throwing away
  • Do not plug in an excessive amount of electronics to the same outlet
  • These are just some of the things you can do to prevent fire. However, to prevent a complete loss in the event of a fire, review your insurance policy and make adjustments as necessary to protect your home and property.
