Fire Safety

Fire officials are urging everyone to take precautions as we enter the cold weather season.  They advise folks to do the following:

-Check wood burners before usage to make sure they are clean and without cracks

-Do not overload electrical circuits in your house

-Do not put heaters near furniture or drapes

-If you are burning brush outdoors, be sure not to leave the fire unattended

-Check smoke and carbon monoxide detectors at least once a month

Officials say these things are especially important now because house fires are most common during the cold weather season.
