Fire Prevention Week

October 3-9 is Fire Prevention Week. Here are a few tips to avoid accidental blazes:

  • Clean lint from your dryer after every load.
  • Keep flammables, like drapes, at least 3 feet from space heaters or other high heat sources.
  • Check appliances for frayed wires.
  • Avoid overloading outlets and power strips.
  • Test your smoke detectors. If you don't have any, consider getting them.
