RV Fire Safety

Just like a home, living in a RV means taking the same, or even more safety precautions. Newschannel 6 sat down with experts at Patterson.

RV experts said every RV comes equipped with multiple safety features like smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, fire extinguishers, raw gas detectors and the most important feature an escape window. 

Experts said whether you are living in the RV or renting it, everyone needs to know how to use all of the safety features and be able to locate them.

Mike Zemlyak, General Manager at Patterson RV Center, said, "I like to say that when you go with an RV your taking your home through an earthquake." Zemlyak added, "You never know what can happen, wires and plumbing can come undone, that's why its really important to keep your safety devices available to you. If something were to happen you'd have that alarm to tell you about it."

RV experts said it's very important that every consumer take their RV in for annual maintenance to make sure everything is working properly.

RV experts said in some cases trailers that don't have a built in generator will sometimes not come with a carbon monoxide detector. In that case they suggest you buy one to stay safe in case of emergency.
