Spring is upon us and that means spring cleaning. 

Here are a view tips to keep your spring cleanup, a fire safe one. 

  • Clean your garage of stored newspapers or other rubbish that can fuel a fire.
  • Change the batteries in your smoke alarms, flashlights, and carbon monoxide detectors.
  • Gently vacuum your smoke alarms to avoid  nuisance alarms. 
  • Keep outdoor debris or dead vegetation away from the house.
  • Check your propane barbecue grill hose for leaks and cracks; store propane outdoors.
  • Use barbecue grills outside only - not under overhangs or balconies, and away from combustibles.  
  • Never use gasoline to start the fire, and do not add charcoal lighter fluid once the fire has started. 
  • Place your outdoor barbecue grill in a safe area away from buildings, windows, heating, ventilation and air conditioning units or places with high/dead vegetation.
  • Properly dispose of your oily or greasy rags. If you must store them, keep them in a labeled, sealed, metal container.

  Be safe and enjoy the warm weather.
