Winter Safety Tips for the Home

  • Space heaters and heating stoves are used throughout the nation to increase the warmth in rooms. They do the job but can be dangerous. In order to use them safely, follow these guidelines.
  • Never use a fuel burning appliance without proper vents to the outside. Burning fuel (kerosene, coal or propane, for example) produces deadly fumes.
  • Be sure your heater is in good working condition. All room heaters need frequent checkups and cleaning. A dirty or neglected heater is a critical fire hazard.
  • Use only the proper fuel for each heater. Never introduce a fuel into a unit not designed for that fuel.
  • Never quicken a fire with kerosene or gasoline.
