Spring Cleaning A Good Time To Review Fire Safety

The Division Chief of Fire Prevention for Fond du Lac Fire and Rescue says while you are doing spring cleaning around your house think about fire safety as well. Troy Haase says getting rid of old newspaper and keeping flammable materials away from dryer vents, hot water heaters and furnaces are a few things you can do. He says another is assessing how you store combustible liquids and chemicals in your garage and home. He says if the weather is nice review fire escape plans with your family and where you would meet outside in case of a fire. Haase also recommends checking smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to make sure they are working.
