CARBON MONOXIDE SAFETY
Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that is produced from fuel burning appliances in and around the home, an oil furnace, a natural gas water heater and even a lawn mower. Install a carbon monoxide detector on every level of the house.
ELECTRICAL FIRE SAFETY
Electrical fires claim the lives of 280 Americans each year. Most of these fires are caused by incorrectly installed electrical wiring and overloaded circuits and extension cords.
Fire deaths are highest in winter months which call for more indoor activities and increases in lighting, heating, and appliance use.
Placing things that can burn too close to heating equipment or placing heating equipment too close to things that can burn, such as upholstered furniture, clothing, mattress, or bedding, was the leading factor contributing to ignition in fatal home heating fires. Take extra precautions and never leave unattended.
