Heating Safety Tips:

1) Keep anything flammable at least three feet away from heating equipment, like the furnace, fireplace, wood stove or a portable space heater.

2) Have a three foot “kid-free zone” around open fires and space heaters. Make sure the fireplace has a sturdy screen to stop sparks from flying into the room. Ashes should be cool before putting them in a metal container. Keep the container a safe distance away from your home.

3) Remember to turn portable heaters off when leaving the room or going to bed.

4) Test smoke alarms monthly. Always use the right kind of fuel, specified by the manufacturer, for fuel. Have heating equipment and chimneys cleaned and inspected every year by a qualified professional.
