Fire Safety Tips


In conjunction with National Fire Safety Month, Jewelers Mutual Insurance Co. offers retailers the following fire safety tips:

  • Ensure that you have the correct type and number of fire extinguishers, and that they are accessible and properly serviced by a reputable service contractor.

  • Familiarize your staff with the location of fire extinguishers, fire alarm system components, hazardous products, and emergency procedures.

  • Review with all employees the proper handling and storage of flammable/combustible liquids and compressed gases.

  • Conduct regular (at least monthly) inspections of your business to identify potential hazards. Invite your local fire department to join you and your staff for a walk-through.
