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

In the Garage or Shed

  • Clean up and properly store paints, pool and yard chemicals
