Cold Weather Fire Safety Tips
Are you noticing an upswing in fires in your community this winter? I sure am, as well as our fire department. According to the State of Massachusetts Fire Marshal Stephen Coan, "The winter months will lead to an increase in fires from heating. Heating is the second leading cause of home fires in Massachusetts." I became a little concerned after hearing this, so I found this fantastic website we can all benefit from called, Keep Warm, Keep Safe.
The website is a helpful and informative public service initiative by the Massachusetts Public Safety and Security to educate home-owners on fire risks. We can all learn from the valuable tips they have to help us to safely navigate the cold winter months.
The Public Safety Website has invaluable, in-depth tips for you to follow to stay safe this winter.
