Fire prevention tips

2/1/2021 (Permalink)

While fires can be started by lightning, wildfire, and other natural causes, you can take many steps to prevent fires from starting in your home.

  • Stay in the kitchen when you’re cooking on the stovetop or using the broiler.
  • Keep grills at least 10 feet away from the siding or deck of your house.
  • Replace any frayed or worn appliance cords.
  • Use portable space heaters cautiously. Keep combustible items at least 3 feet away from a space heater, and purchase heaters that have a thermostat control mechanism that will switch the heater off automatically if it falls over.
  • Store matches and lighters too high for children to reach or in a locked cabinet.
  • Remain in the room while you’re burning a candle, and don’t leave children unattended in a room with a burning candle.
  • Clean and inspect wood stove pipes and chimneys each year.
  • Make sure a fire in the fireplace is completely out before going to bed or leaving the house.
