Home Heating Safety
All Space Heaters Need Space.
Keep things that can burn, such as paper, furniture, bedding or cutains at least three feet away from heating equipment.
Test your smoke alarms and make sure you have at least one smoke alarm on every level of your home, outside each sleeping area and in each bedroom.
Stay in the kitchen when cooking on the stovetop.
The termination of fire season removes fire prevention restrictions on equipment use and the use of fire for debris burning. However, you must call before you burn to determine if it is a burn day.

Do you have a Family Escape Plan?
Having a Family Escape Plan helps to reduce panic and will protect your family from a fire started inside your home. Knowing how to quickly and safely get to your meeting place, then call 911, can save lives and property.
Follow these simple steps to develop a family escape plan;
Get together as a family and draw a floor plan of your home, marking all windows and doors.
- Show two ways out of each room in case your main route is blocked by smoke or flames. Make sure that windows can be easily opened.
- Show working smoke alarms!
- Agree on an outside meeting place where every family member will wait for the fire department.
- Call 911 after you are safely out. Never go back in for any reason.
- Plan for those requiring help; infants, our elderly & pets.
- Practice your plan together.
