Fireproof Your Home
risk of house fires increases during the winter months. Here's how you
can avoid a disaster:
Always supervise children around flammable objects. Keep matches
and other objects out of their reach.
Install smoke detectors and check the batteries monthly
Never smoke in bed and remember to extinguish cigarettes when
you finish smoking
Keep space heaters at least three feet from curtains, clothing
Do not using kerosene lanterns or stoves indoors
Don't use your oven to heat your home, or leave the oven or
other cooking devices on and unattended.
Do not leave a clothes dryer on if no one is in the house.
During the holidays, never leave lighted candles unattended, use
decorations that remain cool when lit, and don't overload
