Space heaters are a leading cause of house fires during the Winter. Take these important safety precautions when using them.

  • Only use heaters listed by a recognized testing laboratory.

  • Make sure your space heater has an auto shutoff function.
  • Never pair your space heater with an extension cord.
  • Never leave a space heater unattended when in use.
  • Purchase space heaters that are cool to the touch.

Dial before you dig.

If any of your fall projects require digging––such as planting trees or shrubs, or setting posts––remember to dial 811 first!
