It's Space Heater Season

10/11/2018 (Permalink)

It is that time of year when fall leaves turn to snowflakes and you need to bring that space heater out of the closet. 

It does not matter which type of space heater you use but, follow these safety tips from the NFPA to reduce the chances of fires and injury:

  • Keep anything that can burn at least 3 feet away from a space heater.
  • Have a three-foot zone around space heaters for children and never use a space heater in a child's bedroom.
  • Run power cords on top of carpet and step over them to avoid abrading the cord. Do not use extension cords.
  • Turn off space heaters when going to bed or leaving a room.
  • Do not use a space heater in a damp or wet area unless it's specifically made for that purpose.
  • Turn space heaters off before leaving the room or going to bed.

Follow these tips to stay safe this winter!

Halloween is just around the corner. We deal with fire damages every day, but we do not want you to have to. There are many factors that contribute to emergencies during Halloween, but there are ways to prevent them.

Here are some simple tips to keep you and your family safe during this spooky season: 

  • Keep decorations far away from open flames.
  • Try a battery-operated candle or glow stick in jack-o'-lanterns.
  • Use flashlights as alternatives to candles or torch lights when decorating walkways and yards.
  • Choose costumes that don't require long-trailing fabric.
  • Talk to your children and remind them to stay away from open flames, including jack-o'-lanterns with candles inside.

We hope everyone has a safe and Happy Halloween!
