Fire Public Safety

  1. It is that time of year when if we take just a few moments and follow some simple safety tips we should all have a much safer and happier Holiday season.
  2. Have your heating unit inspected for proper operation as the longer the cold weather continues the harder the heating unit will work. The inspection may uncover some hidden problems that could be a fire or carbon monoxide issue.
  3. If you use a wood burning stove have it and the chimney inspected by a professional prior to use and remember that burning dry seasoned wood will reduce the creosote buildup in your chimney. And remember to periodically check your chimney for creosote and clean it as needed. This will reduce your change of having a chimney fire.
  4. Do not use extension cords with space heaters and ensure the heater is unplugged when you leave the room.
  5. Never store combustible material next to any heating appliance.
  6. If you put up a live Christmas tree ensure it is fresh by gently pulling on the branches and seeing if the needles come off in your hand. Cut the bottom one to two inches off so it will take water when you put it in the stand. And ensure that the stand if full of water on a daily basis. And never use lighted candles around a live Christmas tree.
  7. Ensure that the lights you put on your tree are in good working order with no broken or bare wires. Be sure to shut your lights off when you go to bed or leave your home.
Hopefully you find the above information helpful. If you have any questions contact the Star Joint Fire Protection District.
