February 27, 2019

The thought of a home fire is frightening for everyone, but the fear is often greater for people living in apartments, condos and dorms. Multi-unit residential buildings can present unique fire safety concerns. With many neighbors living closely together, potentially confusing evacuation routes out of the building, and management companies pressured to balance tenant safety against a list of competing priorities, many apartment dwellers avoid thinking about fire risks altogether.

If you live in an apartment, however, understanding the risks and creating a fire preparedness plan can save your life. Most apartment fires are caused by easily avoidable human error and therefore, are often preventable. A bit of preparation can stop a small accident from becoming a big tragedy. Here's what you need to know to prevent, fight, and escape from apartment fires.
