Do you know how long you have to get out after a smoke detector sounds, or how often you should replace them? Do you have a plan if your house starts burning down?

It’s Fire Prevention Week, which means two things.

One, it’s an especially bad time to commit arson. Two, the National Fire Protection Association has a fire safety quiz with questions like, “If a fire breaks out in your home you have __________ to get out once the smoke alarm sounds?” (Answer: a few minutes).

But jokes aside, disasters do happen – preparing for them is smart, not funny. Not preparing could cost you lots of money, or the life of you or a loved one. That’s why we do stories about disaster preparation, and how to save on renter’s or homeowner’s insurance. Check these out, and the links below the story, too:
