Fire Safety Tips
  • The leading cause of residential fires is cooking. Please remember to turn off ovens and stoves if your are going out. When cooking, keep a close watch. Food can burn or catch fire very quickly. The 2 minute visit next door or across the street to talk to a neighbor could lead to a disaster!

  • Also be careful when using microwave ovens. Read the instructions. Some items can cause sparking and/or fire. Be careful.

  • Check all smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms monthly.

  • Fire killed almost 3,900 people in 2004, 82% died in home fires.

  • Getting ready for the heating season? Have a qualified professional check your furnace or boiler for proper operation. A few dollars spent now could save you thousands later if you have a fire due to a faulty heating system!

  • If you hear your smoke or fire alarm, smell something burning or sense a problem, don t wait, CALL 911 right away. Let us check it. If there is a problem, seconds count, so the sooner we arrive to investigate the cause, the safer it is for all.

Have a professional check your system to prevent possible carbon monoxide back-up. Damaged or clogged chimneys are a major cause of fire and CO poisoning.
