Heating Safety in Extreme Cold

One in every seven home fires are related to heating equipment.

If you plan to use an alternative heating source during this winter storm, please do it safely.

  • DO NOT use a propane torch or other open flame device to thaw frozen water pipes.
  • Keep generators at least 20 feet away from the house.
  • DO NOT use an oven to heat your home.
  • Keep anything that can burn at least three feet away from heating equipment.
  • Use space heaters with automatic shut-offs and plug them directly into an outlet, NOT a power strip.
  • DO NOT use a kerosene heater inside your home.
