Week 1- Prepare for Winter Storms:

Home fires occur more in winter than in any other season. To make sure you’re prepared do the following: Our furnace has been inspected and serviced by a qualified professional during the last 12 months. Cleaning your chimney needs to be done at least once a year, if your home has a chimney. You should have a covered metal container ready to use to dispose cooled ashes from the fireplace, if you have one. If you have an ash container, it should be kept at least 10 feet from the home and any nearby buildings. Make children know to stay at least 3 feet away from the fireplace, wood/pellet stove, oil stove or other space heaters and they’re always placed at least three feet from anything that can burn; like bedding, paper, walls, and even people. Test smoke alarms and made sure they are working. Make sure you have them on every level of the home, inside each sleeping room and outside each separate sleeping area. Test carbon monoxide alarms and make sure they are working. Carbon monoxide alarms should be located outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home.
