Winter Safety Tips

wintertipsCar Warming: Never leave your car running in the garage to warm it up. Vehicle engines produce carbon monoxide (CO) that can quickly fill your home.

Detectors: Make sure your smoke detectors and CO detectors are working properly.

Doorways/Walkways: Keep your doorways and walkways clear of snow and ice.

Frozen Pipes: If you encounter frozen pipes, call a professional for help. Never use a torch or open flame device to thaw the pipe.

Hydrants: If you have a fire hydrant near your home, please keep it clear of snow. If you are unable to do this yourself, contact the firehouse so we can take care of it.

Space Heaters: Only use space heaters that are U.L. listed and approved and make sure to keep them away from flammable/combustible materials.
