SERVPRO of North Pensacola Wishes All the Best for Gaberonne
During the holiday season, there is a spike in the number of in-home fires. Decorative candles can be a fire hazard. SERVPRO® of North Pensacola reminds Molino that keeping a fire extinguisher that is easily accessible can help you reduce the risk of fire damage to your home.

We’ve been living in 2020 with the rest of you. We’re ready for a stress-free month, but December is never easy. It may be fun and cheery, but not easy.
Adding injury to insult (yes, that’s backwards), December’s a high-risk month for fires, with increased risk from:
- Electrical overloads
- Fireplace mishaps
If fire does strike, the first thing to do is get everyone the heck out of the house and call the fire department.
Truth is, you shouldn’t have to call the fire department. Your smoke detector should be linked to an alarm system that calls the fire department.
Make sure everyone is safe.

Holiday Safety Tips
The research gang at SERVPRO of North Pensacola did some digging into the virtual stack of the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) and came up these tips:
- Keep fire extinguishers nearby (fireplaces, kitchens, where candles burn, etc.)
- Make sure everyone knows how to use them
- Use a fire extinguisher ONLY when
- Everyone else is out of the house
- Fire department is on the way
- The fire is small
- The fire is contained (as in a wastebasket)
- Consider using the contradictorily named flameless candles instead of traditional candles. These nifty things use small batteries. They flicker and even have wax scents to seem like regular candles.
- If you do use traditional candles
- Keep them away from flammable materials
- Douse them when you leave the room or go to sleep
- Keep children and pets away from them
- If you need to keep them burning, either stay in the room, or leave them in a pan of water in the sink
- Don’t overload extension cords
- Plug space heaters into walls, not power strips or extension cords
- Members of the deer family (Cervidae)
- Called “caribou” in North America
- Native to the Arctic, sub-Arctic, and regions of northern Europe, Siberia, and North America
- Only deer where both males and females grow antlers
- Males shed antlers early in winter
- Females shed antlers in spring
- Both grow antlers in summer
- Classified in 12 surviving subspecies
