As the temperature cools down, home heating appliances heat up-safety tips from Germantown Fire Department to keep your home and family safe this winter heating season.
Have heating equipment and chimneys cleaned and inspected every year by a qualified professional.
Keep anything that can burn at least three feet away from heating equipment, like your furnace, fireplace and portable space heaters.
Fireplace screens should be sturdy to stop sparks from escaping and ashes must be cool before placing them in a metal container with a lid and kept a safe distance away from your home.
Remember to always turn off space heaters when leaving the room or going to bed and always keep children and pets away.
Test smoke alarms monthly, practice home fire safety drills and install and maintain a working Carbon Monoxide detector in the home.
Be warm and safe this winter!
