Home heating and fire safety
- Remember to have all home heating appliances (i.e. furnaces, fireplaces and woodstoves) serviced annually by a qualified technician. If burning daily, chimneys may need cleaning a few times over the winter.
- Keep blankets, curtains, furniture, pillows and other combustibles at least 10 cm from heaters, and one metre from fireplaces, woodstoves or space heaters.
- If you are using space heaters, turn them off before going to sleep or when leaving the home for any period of time. Never use your oven or stove to heat your home.
- Only use generators outdoors in well-ventilated areas. Generators should be placed a safe distance away from the home. Never use a generator in your garage or basement.
- Ensure you have an emergency kit for your home with enough supplies for 72 hours.
