Preparation for Southern California's Scorching Summers
Here in Southern California, our summers can get hot. With temperatures reaching over 100 degrees, this is the catalyst for many brush fires that sweep the state every summer. These fires have the unfortunate potential of reaching residential areas, which is why being prepared for a fire should be in the mind of one who lives in high risk areas.
To prepare for these situations, consider making an emergency home kit. Our blogs go into detail about the types of materials you want to add to the kit to ensure you’re as prepared as possible if that tumultuous time ever arrives. Even if you are not in a high risk area, it is still wise to equip your home with an emergency kit because the events of the future can never be predicted.
In addition to brush fires, the appliances in your home could be a potential catalyst of fire. Since temperatures are higher than usual, these appliances have a greater risk of overheating, potentially causing a fire. To prevent this, read our blogs on annual home inspections. This will give you information on how to inspect different appliances and tools in your home to make sure they are functioning properly, minimizing any potential for dangerous malfunction.
Take this as a reminder to note the change of seasons and how it could affect your home or surroundings.
