Keep your family safe with these easy safety tips

Every year there are many fires related to fire places.roaring fireplace

Make sure that your chimney is cleaned each year by a licences contractor. 

Keep the fires in the fireplaces small, burning only one or two logs at a time.

Wait for at least 24 hours before removing the ashes and put them in a empty metal can, outside and away from the house and garage.

Clothes dryers are involved in an estimated 15,000 fires each year.  A build up of lint, in your clothes dryer not only creates a fire hazard, but also reduces the efficiency of your dryer.

Clean the link filter in the dryer before each use.  Every year or two remove the lint from around the drum of the dryer.dirty lint fliter

Make sure the dryer is plugged into a suitable outlet for it's needs.

Don't operate the dryer without a lint filter.

Make sure the air exhaust vent pipe is not restricted.  Check the flap to make sure it opens when the dryer is on.

Clean out the exhaust pipe with a long duster.

Don't leave the dryer on if you go out.

Make sure there are no combustibles in the area.

 

Pull the refrigerator out and clean underneath and the back.   The dust is combustible.

Virginia- everyone needs to be aware of these fire hazards. I remember years ago of being warned about leaving the dryer on when you leave the house.  These are easy things we can do to save our lives and homes.
