HOLIDAY HAZARDS- Fire Safety Tips for the entire family!
When buying your Christmas Tree,
be sure to pick a fresh tree. You'll know it's fresh if the needles are firmly
attached. When the tree is in your home, keep plenty of water around the base.
A dry tree is the source of more than 1,000 house fires every year.
Be bright about lights! Don't
use lights with worn insulation, broken plugs, and loose sockets. They can
cause fires, shocks and even electrocution.
Be careful when hanging several
light strings together. You could have an overload situation. Remember, all
lighting inside and out, should be turned off before going to bed. Regular mini
lights usually are 3 sets max strung together while newer LED lights are 23 or
Space heaters- keep away from
curtains, bedspreads, and furniture. Make sure children know they could get
burned if they touch one.
Are the stockings hung by the
chimney with care? Be especially careful if there’s a cozy fire going in the
Be sure fireplaces are covered
with a sturdy metal screen or heat tempered glass doors. This reduces the
chance of a fire starting from escaping sparks of wood.
Take the tree down when the
holidays are over. Every day it stands in the house, it gets drier.
Do not coil extension cords or
regular light cords. They cause a magnetic field, heat and could cause a fire.
FIREPLACES & WOODSTOVES:
Never leave a fire unattended.
Have your chimney & fireplace inspected annually by a certified chimney
sweep. They check for cracks, crumbling, obstructions, & creosote build-up.
Burn dry, well-seasoned wood to prevent fires in the flue. Make sure your stove
burns hot twice a day for 15-30 minutes to reduce creosote build-up. Charcoal
can give off lethal amounts of carbon monoxide so never burn it indoors. Make
sure the fire is out before going to bed. NEVER close the damper while hot
ashes are in the fireplace, this could cause the fire to flare up and cause
toxic carbon monoxide to be released to the house. If you use synthetic logs,
read the instructions on the package, never break them apart to quicken the
fire or use more than one log at a time. Place ashes outdoors in a covered
metal container at least 3 feet from anything that can burn.
Make sure you have 3 feet of
space between the heater and everything else like stated above. Never leave
children unattended around heaters or use extension cords with them. Be sure
the heater has a tip-over shut-off function, clean dust from heaters; buildup
can ignite and cause a fire. Turn off the heater when leaving the house or
sleeping. Avoid using heaters in the bathroom.
Leave furnace work to the
experts and have a qualified technician check and clean your unit yearly. The
technician should check the wall and ceiling near the furnace and flue. If they
are hot you may need extra insulation. Be sure the emergency shut-off and controls
are in good condition. Always keep trash, papers, paint etc. away from the
Install a smoke detector in each
level, and each bedroom of your home and test them once a month. Never remove
batteries from smoke detector to use in toys or anything similar. Change your
batteries twice a year. When you change your clock change your batteries. Smoke
detectors save lives!
COLD WEATHER FIRE SAFETY:
If your pipes freeze, don't try
to them with a blowtorch or other open flame. The pipe can conduct heat and
start a fire. Try a hand held dryer, hot water or UL labeled device for
thawing. Never use oven or range to heat your home. This is a safety hazard and
can build-up toxic fumes. Be certain that all windows used as emergency exits
can still be opened in winter. If a fire hydrant is near your house, help keep
it clear of snow and debris, it will make it easier for the fire department
when they arrive.
Plan a fire escape with your family. Practice the plan twice a year; it’s good to practice in winter so you know what to do in the cold. Make sure all family members know the plan and decide a meeting place outside and away from the house where everyone can be accounted for. If you suspect a fire, get out and call 911 from your cell phone or neighbor’s house. Never re-enter a burning building.
