Valentine's Day Fire Safety Tips!

The other day, Firefighter Dayna and I spent some time out in the clubhouse taking pictures for Valentine's Day.

We had SO MUCH FUN! We couldn't decide which picture to use so we decided to share them all!

For all the grown-ups out there, be sure to help keep your children and your pets safe on this special day!

Since grown-ups like to use candles, I thought I'd share some very important candle safety tips. 

Did you know that, according to statistics, there are over 15,260 home candle fires each year? That's a lot!

Here are some tips!

  • Consider using battery-operated or electric flameless candles and fragrance warmers, which can look, smell and feel like real candles – without the flame.
  • If you do use candles, ensure they are in sturdy metal, glass or ceramic holders and placed where they cannot be easily knocked down.
  • Avoid using candles in bedrooms and sleeping areas.
  • Extinguish candles after use and before going to bed
  • Keep candles at least 12 inches away from anything that can burn
  • Keep candles out of reach from children and pets

Please be sure to follow me on Facebook! I would love to be your friend! 

Happy Valentine's Day, stay safe, and remember: Fire Safety Rocks!
