We have all see the mess of cords plugged in and tangled together and not well organized. This is a huge fire hazard that should be corrected and maintained immediately.
7. Properly Store flammable products
These products range from hair spray to chemicals we use for cleaning. Make sure to keep these is a cool dry place to prevent a fire. In Florida one of those places does not include to garage because of how hot it gets in there.
8. Be cautious with candles
Never walk away from a lit candle. If a spark or flame jumps it can quickly turn disastrous. You should also be trimming the wicks before every use.

In Florida there are very few fireplaces but some home do still have them. Make sure to properly maintain them and have the stack cleaned regularly.
