Severe storms and fire are significant dangers for people living in mobile homes. Being relatively light and compact structures, mobile homes cannot resist high winds or fire as well as conventional homes. Though standards for manufactured housing have greatly improved in recent years, many mobile homes built before 1976 do not have the safety features now required by federal law. Regardless of your home's age, you should take special precautions to guard against these serious hazards.
