Safety Starts From The Outside In While many homeowners often think of the many indoor risks present, fire prevention is just as important outdoors as well. Factors that you’ll want to be aware of include:

  • Clearing leaves and debris from the property.
  • Avoid parking vehicles on top of leaves. Dried foliage can quickly ignite due to the ambient temperature from your car’s engine.
  • Prune back trees, especially any damaged branches and any pieces near power lines.
  • Ensure all flammable liquids and gases are properly stored.
Within The Home Once your yard is winter ready, you can focus on indoor factors that may pose a risk. Such areas include:
  • Inspecting smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors
  • Having your fireplace’s dampeners checked
  • Ensuring wood burning fireplaces have proper screening to prevent sparks from igniting other materials.
  • Keeping a careful watch of space heaters, electric blankets, and any other freestanding sources of heat within the home.
  • Exercising caution and avoid overloading electric outlets
  • Never leaving candles unattended
