Pre-Fall Safety Tips
Now is the time to prepare for the coming fall season. Time to make sure all of your heating equipment is cleaned and serviced. Regular cleaning insures that your equipment is safe and will run more efficiently during the coming heating season. While it is still good weather make sure your wood burning appliances have been cleaned, checked and are ready to be used.
As we move to cooler weather make sure your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms are in good working order and are tested. It is the recommendation that carbon monoxide detectors/alarms be located outside each sleeping area, 21 feet along the path of travel which in most cases will cover several bedrooms, on every occupied level of a dwelling to include basements but not in attics, garages or crawl spaces and in any bedroom with fuel burning appliances, including wood, pellet, or gas stoves. Every year carbon monoxide kills several occupants and itís not necessary with the advancements in carbon monoxide alarms.
If you havenít purchased one, have a metal container ready to dispose of any cooled ashes from the fire place or wood stove and store it on a surface that will not burn, well outside of the building. Make sure that any electric space heaters have a tip over shut off capability and donít use them with an extension cord.
Donít wait for it to be cold out, test devices now, get ready for the coming cool weather season.
