- Keep any flammable items, including draperies and bedding at least three feet from heater equipment such as space heaters, wood burning stoves and furnaces.
- Check smoke and carbon monoxide detectors on each level of the house.
- Have your home’s heating cleaned and inspected by a qualified professional once a year at a minimum.
- Never burn wrapping paper or treated wood. It can release toxic fumes. Store cooled ashes outside in a well-sealed metal container 10 feet or more from the house.
