Scottsdale Fire: We Care For You.
Turning up the heat? Take Steps to Be sure your home is Fireplace, Furnace ready!
Heating equipment is a leading cause of home fires during the months of December, January and February, and trails only cooking equipment in home fires year-round, according to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).
On average, more than a third of home fire deaths in the United States occur during the winter months. Critical elements of home heating safety have to do with correct installation, maintenance, fueling and operation of portable and space heaters, as well as safely arranging household items around them.
This winter, as many Americans turn to alternative sources to offset rising home heating costs, it is important to take note of safety practices to minimize the risk of fire and serious injury. Check out safety tips to protect your home and family here.
