Did you know that heating equipment is the leading cause of home fire deaths?

Keep your family safe this winter. If you use a portable heater, make sure:

• It is on a solid, flat surface
• It is plugged directly into a wall outlet. Never use an extension cord.
• It is at least three feet away from anything that can burn
• It has an automatic off switch if it tips over
• It is unplugged when you leave the room or go to bed

Don’t forget to check your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors regularly to ensure they are working. Learn more at https://www.ready.gov/home-fires
