Fireplace Fireplace safety is important to protect your home.

As summer winds down and the cooler weather starts heading our way, there is nothing better than cozying up to your fireplace with a good book. Here are some helpful tips to keeping you safely warm this fall and winter.

  • Get your chimney inspected each year to make sure that it is safe
  • Hire a chimney sweep to clean out your chimney every fall
  • Repair any cracks in fireplaces
  • Use fireplace screens to keep sparks and debris inside the fireplace
  • Do not ever use gasoline to start a fire in the fireplace
  • Never leave a fire unattended
  • Make sure that combustible materials are not stored within three feet of your fireplace
  • For natural gas fireplaces, get all connections and lines inspected before use each season
  • Remember that outdoor fireplaces can be just as dangerous as indoor units, and observe all safety precautions when using them
It is also very important that members of your household know how to react in the event of a fire. It’s a good idea to review fire prevention and safety tips with your family every fall.
