Put A Freeze on Winter Fires

1/6/2021 (Permalink)

According to the National Fire Protection Association, there is an increased risk of indoor fires during the winter months. Here are some ways to mitigate this risk:

 -Only plug in one heat-producing appliance into an outlet at a time.

-Do not use an extension cord with a heat-producing appliance.

-Get your chimney and vents professionally cleaned every year.

-Keep cooled ashes outside at least 10 feet from your home in a covered metal container.

-Keep candles 12 inches away from anything that burns and consider switching to battery-operated candles instead.

-If additional wall outlets are needed, have an electrician come and install them.

-Ensure that you are using light bulbs that match the wattage that is recommended on the fixture.

-Keep anything that can burn at least 3 feet from any heating sources.
