Halloween Safety

Back to the routine!

School is starting back up and you'll be busy doing all kinds of new exciting things. Before you get too busy make sure that you check your house for fall fire hazards!

Look for any piles of newspapers, magazines, boxes or other combustible materials. You should remove these items from your house, garage, or yard to reduce the risk of fire.

What should I do with all this stuff?

Recycle any paper, newspaper, plastics, or boxes. That way you are not just being fire safe...you’re helping save the environment too!

Have you had your chimney cleaned and inspected?

Call a professional and get them to come out to check your fireplace/ woodstove and chimney. They should be cleaned and inspected at least once a year. Creosote builds up in a chimney as it’s used, and can lead to a dangerous chimney fire.

What about your furnace?

This is also a great time to get your furnace inspected. You should have your furnace cleaned and inspected once a year, to keep it running trouble-free all winter. Remember a faulty furnace can fill your home with carbon monoxide, and unless your carbon monoxide detector senses it, the silent killer may invade your home. Don’t be sorry. Have your furnace checked, and test your carbon monoxide detector regularly.
