Saving lives and property has been our passion for the past 29 years. And it all started in 1989, when a 19-year-old kid with a love for fire safety sold his first fire extinguisher. Today, we celebrate that kid, firefighter Allen Kronebusch who runs AKE Safety Equipment as we cherish our 29th anniversary.
Halloween is quickly approaching and soon children will be dressed in costumes in search of candy. Although costumes and decorations for Halloween are fun, they also pose numerous fire hazards as well. To eliminate the threat of fire, take a few safety precautions this year to protect your family, friends, and the many trick-or-treaters sure to stop by.
The greatest danger in a fire emergency is caused from panic and disorder. Knowing what to do and regular practice will go a long way in saving lives from fire. Training, preparation and practice of evacuation procedures are the most effective ways to prevent loss of life and injury.
