Safe Haven Shares Tips on Fire Safety for National Barbecue Month

By: Safe Haven Admin,

Summer is near and many are already breaking out the barbeque grills for some backyard fun. Data from the National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) shows that between 2009 – 2013, U.S. fire departments responded to an average of 8,900 home fires involving grills, hibachis and barbecues, per year. On average, these fires caused 10 deaths, 160 injuries and over $100 million in direct property damage each year during that span. Furthermore, their data shows that around 80 percent of grills involved in home fires were gas powered, while only 13 percent used charcoal or another solid fuel source.

To help reduce the amount of fires in your home caused by grills and barbecues, there are several tips that you can follow to help stay safe and not let the possibility of a fire ruin your fun times.

Grill Placement
When it comes to fire safety with your grill, proper placement is important. You never want to use your grill indoors, regardless of its size. Grills release carbon monoxide, a deadly gas that is odorless and colorless. When it come to positioning your grill, you’ll want to ensure that your cooking surface has no decorations near it. Any kind of decoration could become possible fuel for a fire and artificial fibers used on outdoor furniture can burn quickly and at a higher heat. Lastly, it is important to keep your grill at least 10 feet away from the exterior of your house.

Before you even begin cooking, it’s important to clean not only the surface of your grill, but anywhere else grease can store. In fact, grease is a common factor in home fires as it can often cause flare ups. Refrain from placing all the food you intend to cook on the grill at once. By doing so, you’ll avoid creating an excess amount of fat dripping down into the fire, helping a potentially dangerous flare up.

By: Safe Haven,

As the second largest ADT Authorized Dealer in the United States, Safe Haven Security is constantly looking to increase the safety of homes across the country. In fact, only 17 percent of homes are equipped with a personal security system, which leaves millions still unsecured. To help reach these potential customers, Safe Haven needs additional outside sales representatives. Various studies show that the home security industry is expected to have an annual growth of over 8 percent between 2015 and 2020. This illustrates our need to continuously recruit outgoing and motivated sales professionals to join our team.

Safe Haven offers their sales representatives an incredible opportunity for success. With an uncapped commission structure, reps can potentially earn anywhere from $45,000 to well over $100,000 annually.

Certain data shows that over 70 percent of individuals are living from paycheck to paycheck. This financial situation makes it difficult for individuals to save money for a new home or even a rainy day fund for an emergency.

Our employees have a lot of positive things to say about the company in regards to how Safe Haven takes care of them with additional perks.

Homebuyer Moving, Security and Insurance Tips

By: Safe Haven,

It’s an exciting and stressful time to move into a new home. A fresh new start in a place that allows you additional space for your family. While exciting, there’s a lot you need to consider such as your home security, unpacking, adjusting to the area as well as home insurance.

While many of us have had to deal with renter’s insurance in the past, owning a home often means you need to find proper home insurance. While no one wants to have an accident in their home, such as a fire or break in, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be prepared for an incident. stresses several important factors to consider when shopping for home insurance for your new dwelling. The company recommends specifically shopping around and paying close attention to the rates, deductibles and coverage options of a minimum of two to three companies. You do not want to short yourself when it comes to adequate coverage for your home. Did you know that it’s possible to view a report of your new home’s previous claim’s report online? This is another report you may want to look at in order to determine what kind of coverage you may need on your home.

Another factor to consider when you move into your new home is home security. The choice of a home security system is an important decision that should not be taken lightly. By adding a security system to your home, you can actually reduce the cost of your insurance while also providing yourself some peace of mind. If you purchased a home with a security system, it’s important to decide whether or not you would like to activate the system that’s already installed or choose a new company. You also have the potential of updating the current system to a more advanced system. Maybe you’d like to take that old ADT system and update it with the ADT Pulse? As we discussed in a previous post, the Pulse system allows you to control various aspects of your home. also recommends simple steps that can be taken such as changing the batteries in your alarms and smoke detection units as well as changing the locks on any doors. These simple tasks are especially important since you may not know exactly when the batteries were last changed, let alone if there are currently any batteries in the devices at all.
