Welcome to Millsap Fire Rescue
The Winter Fire Safety by the team at MobileHomeInsuranceQuotes.org
Carbon monoxide or CO is a colorless and odorless gas. CO poisoning can occur when a
fuel-burning appliance or machine, such as a furnace, heater or generator, is not working
or vented properly. Breathing in CO at high levels can be fatal.
Learn what you can do to protect your family from the dangers of CO.
• Install and maintain CO alarms inside your home to provide early warning of CO.
• Install CO alarms in a central location outside each separate sleeping area and on every level of your home.
• Use portable generators outdoors in well-ventilated areas away from all doors, windows and vents.
• Make sure vents for the dryer, furnace, stove and fireplace are clear of snow and other debris.
• Remove vehicles from the garage immediately after starting.
Follow these heating tips to help prevent winter
fires and to stay safe this winter season:
• Keep anything that can burn at least 3 feet from all heat sources including fireplaces, wood stoves,
radiators, space heaters or candles.
• Never use an oven to heat your home.
• Turn space heaters off when leaving the room or going to bed.
• Maintain heating equipment and chimneys by having them cleaned and inspected annually by
a qualified professional.
