Fire Prevention Tips

Put a Freeze on Winter Fires
The United State Fire Administration (USFA) and NFPA remind you that home fires are more prevalent in winter than in any other season. People are at greater risk in the winter season when they cook holiday meals, display decorations, and may use unsafe heat sources.
The top three days for home candle fires are Christmas, New Year's Day and Christmas Eve.
Heating equipment is one of the leading causes of home fires during the winter months. In fact, half of all home heating fires occur in December, January, and February.
