USFA, NFPA Share Winter Fire Safety Tips

For several reasons, fires are a significant threat during the winter and the holiday season.

Two organizations devoted to fire prevention and fire protection, the United States Fire Administration and the National Fire Protection Association, are working together this year to remind the public that home fires are more prevalent in winter than in any other season. This is due in part to an increase in cooking and heating fires, but there are other factors, as well.

Holiday decorations and winter storms can interrupt electrical service, causing homeowners to turn to alternative heating sources that may also contribute to a higher risk of fire in the winter.

The two organizations offer specific tips here about cooking, decorations, carbon monoxide, winter storms, candles, electrical hazards, heating appliances, and smoking to prevent fires during this season of the year and for maintaining a fire-safe home.
