12/20/16 - Winter Tips

 

 

Install smoke alarms on every level of your home, inside bedrooms and outside sleeping areas.

 

Once a month check whether each alarm in the home is working properly by pushing the test button.

 

Replace batteries in smoke alarms at least once a year. Immediately install a new battery if an alarm chirps, warning the battery is low.

 

Never disable smoke or carbon monoxide alarms.

 

Teach your children what smoke and carbon monoxide alarms sound like and what to do when they hear them.

 

Know all of your house exits and be sure that all escape routes are free of snow.

 

Carbon monoxide alarms are not substitutes for smoke alarms. Know the difference between the sound of smoke alarms and carbon monoxide alarms.

 

Keep all potential sources of fuel like paper, clothing, bedding or rugs at least three feet away from space heaters, stoves, or fireplaces.

 

Portable heaters and fireplaces should never be left unattended. Turn off space heaters and make sure any embers in the fireplace are extinguished before going to bed or leaving home.

 

If you must use a space heater, place it on a level, hard and nonflammable surface (such as ceramic tile floor), not on rugs or carpets or near bedding or drapes. Keep children and pets away from space heaters.

 

When buying a space heater, look for models that shut off automatically if the heater falls over as another safety measure.

 

Never use a cooking range or oven to heat your home.

 

Keep fire in your fireplace by using a glass or metal fire screen large enough to catch sparks and rolling logs.

 

Have wood and coal stoves, fireplaces, chimneys, and furnaces professionally inspected and cleaned once a year.


Shovel the snow away from fire hydrants that are near your home for easy access in case of an emergency.

 

Drive carefully and adjust your speed for the road conditions.
