Winter Fire Safety


National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) along with Upper Providence DFES want you to put a freeze on winter fires.

Below are some winter safety tips.

  • Keep anything that can burn at least 3-feet from any heat source i.e.: fireplaces, wood stoves, space heaters or radiators.  
  • Keep portable generators outside a safe distance from your residence with the exhaust pipe facing away from the house. 
  • Test your Carbon Monoxide alarm at least once a month.   
  • Plug only one heat appliance into an outlet at one time (space heater). 
  • Chimney and Vents should be inspected by qualified professionals every year. 
  • Put cooled ashes in a metal container with a lid outside of your home at least 10 feet away from the residence and any other structure.
