Winter Season Fire Risks
There are 25,000 house fires annually due to overly soiled chimneys. When was your chimney last swept. Some folks have more than one fire place--get them all swept. Please consider taking your cellular phone charger out of the outlet when it is not charging your mobile phone--ever notice how hot that charger gets? If you enjoy supplementing winter time warmth with electric blankets and space heaters, consider their age, and examine all cords at the beginning of the season, and always remember to turn off and/or unplug these items when not in use, and especially when you are leaving the house--even if it be for just a 20 minute journey up the street to the convenience store.
