    Spring Fire Safety Tips

    As spring approaches thoughts turn to cleaning up from the long winter, making repairs around the home and enjoying the outdoors. Keeping a few safety thoughts in mind will help you make your spring experience much more enjoyable.

    Inside the Home:
    •Check and clean your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors
    •Check your fire extinguishers
    •Check for overloaded or damaged extension cords
    •Prepare for storm related outages (make sure your flashlights and portable radios have batteries and that other supplies, such as bottled water, are stocked and available)
    •Practice exit drills with your family so everyone knows what to do in case of an emergency
    •Properly store household chemicals and never mix cleaning agents

    Outside and Around the Yard:
    •Make sure your address numbers are up and visible from the street
    •Clean up yard debris. Cut back dead limbs and grasses
    •Maintain a clear 'fire zone' of 10' around structures. Clean up leaves and debris and consider using stone or non-combustible mulches
    •Check outdoor electrical outlets and other electrical appliances
    •Get your grill cleaned and serviced. Check all propane tanks and lines for leaks and damage
    •Keep 100' of garden hose with an attached nozzle connected and ready for use

    In the Garage or Shed:
    •Clean up and properly store paints, pool and yard chemicals
    •Check fuels containers for leaks and make sure they are properly stored
    •Have all power equipment cleaned, serviced and readied for use
