This is an excellent survey. We all want the fire department to respond quickly, but whatever homeowners can do in the realm of preventative measures can go a long way in delaying and decreasing chances of their homes being burned.

The survey conducted is very useful, not only for the fire department but also for homeowners. As results are analyzed, additional safety measures can be added and the fire department can come up with more ways to respond faster.

Societal safeguards established by those who have shared perceptions in the importance of safety and taking preventative measures reduce the incidence of accidents that harm people and damage property. These safeguards prevent or discourage community members from partaking in careless behavior that often leads to accidents.
