           Spring is here. 

Tips to keep your home safe this Spring: 

  • Clean your garage of stored newspapers or other rubbish that can fuel a fire.
  • Test your smoke alarms montly.
  • To help prevent nuisance alarms, gently vacuum your smoke alarms every six months or as needed.
  • Change the batteries in your smoke alarms, flalshlights, and carbon monoxide detectors.  Spring is known for severe storms that may cause long power outages.
  • Never borrow smoke alarm batteries to use for toys or other equipment. 
  • Replace your smoke alarms every 10 years or as recommended by the manufacturer. 
  • Keep outdoor debris or dead vegetation away from the house
  • Properly dispose of oily or greasy rags; if these items must be stored, keep them in labeled, sealed, metal containers.  
  • Store gasoline outside your home in a shed or detached garage. Keep only small quantities in tightly sealed containers. Use gasoline only as a motor fuel - never as a cleaning agent.
  •  Use your outdoor barbecue grill with caution.  Place in a safe area away from buildings, windows, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning units or places with high/dead vegetation.
  • Never use gasoline to start the fire, and do not add charcoal lighter fluid once the fire has started.
  • Use barbecue grills outside only, do not place under overhangs or balconies, and away from combustibles.
  • Check your propane barbecue grill hose for leaks and cracks; never store propane indoors.

     Be safe and drink plenty of water.
