 Getting ready for the Winter!!

Some quick tips to remember when preparing for the winter freeze.  

1) ALWAYS have your chimneys cleaned and inspected by a qualified professional at least once a year.  Not cleaning your chimney is the leading cause of chimney fires from built up creosote.  

2) Ensure there is a fireplace screen, metal or heat-tempered glass, is in good working condition and secure in its position.  

3) All portable space heaters should have an automatic shut-off and will be plugged directly into an outlet and NOT an extension cord.  Should be placed at least 3 feet away from anything that will burn.  Also, remember to SHUT OFF all portable heaters when you leave a room or go to bed.  

4) Remember to test all smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors in your home.  Smoke Detectors and Carbon monoxide detectors should be located outside each sleeping area and on every level of your home.

CHRISTMAS TREE SAFETY TIPS

We do understand that there are still a lot of people that purchase real Christmas trees, so please remember to:

- Choose a fresh, green tree with needles that do no fall off when touched

- Make sure the tree is at least three feet away from any heat source

- Please WATER DAILY, a dry tree is a dangerous tree!

After Christmas is over and the needles begin to drop, dried out trees are a fire danger and should not be left in your home, garage or even outside up against the house.  Please find your local Christmas Tree Recycling location for the correct way to dispose of a Christmas Tree
