I think as a fire fighter, volunteer, after my first post about fire safety I will post some additional tips. Thank you for your comments on the first one and I hope you were as surprised as I was about remote control fire places.
OK,so why is 20 minutes important? In many rural areas we have urban and wild land interfaces. Simply put many of us like the country and live in rural areas. When a wild land fire starts, containment is a number one priority. In the South and Eastern part of the US , unlike the West, 90 percent of homes can be saved from burning out if they are prepped. The prepping consists of fire fighters making the home as tough to ignite as possible by an on coming fire. This is where the 20 minutes comes in . When there are multiple homes to protect we spend no more than 20 minutes per home . If your home needs more than that time we move on to others, It is a matter of saving as many as you can. In another post I will list important things for you to do. But think about it. 20 minutes of our prep can 90 percent of the time save your home. Stay tuned.
