CDC Podcast Tells Proper Use of Candles Following Power Outage

During a natural disaster, it is common for power to go out of service. Part of the CDC Hurricane Preparedness podcast series, "Proper Use of Candles During a Power Outage" is a free podcast that issues a quick alert to homeowners on how to avoid the risk of a house fire following a natural disaster.

Using candles greatly increases the possibility of a house fire, CDC says, and fire trucks may have trouble getting to homes. If the power is out, CDC recommends the use flashlights or other battery-powered lights if possible, instead of candles.

The podcast informs listeners that if candles must be used, keep them in safe holders away from anything that could catch fire and never leave a burning candle unattended.
