[ARCHIVED] Winter Fire Safety and Portable Heater Safety

Winter storms can leave homes and businesses without electricity; leading to alternate ways to find heat. Whenever you use alternate heating methods, you increase the risk of having a home fire or exposing you and others to dangerous carbon monoxide. Generators should always be used outside. Take a few minutes to view a PSA on Winter Fire Safety.

Space heaters cause one-third of home heating fires and 4 out of 5 home heating fire deaths. Protect your family: if you're heating your home with a space heater this winter, take a few moments to view the PSA on Portable Heater Safety.
