Pacific Fire Winter Safety Tips

The Pacific Fire Protection District would like people to be aware of certain home heating tips now that the temperature has dropped and more people are using furnaces and heaters to stay warm. The use of portable heaters which account for 900 fire related calls a year in the US.  It is advised that any portable heater being used in homes has an automatic shut off so that if it falls over, the heater will shut off.  Try to keep the heater 3ft away from any combustible materials such as bedding, furniture, and blankets. Any portable heater should be turned off at bedtime or when the home is left unattended.  It is also important to not use an oven as an alternative heating source in a home.

                Now that furnaces are being used more often, it is vital to have all vents cleaned and cleared of any debris by a professional.   Vents need to have an open access to the outside of the home to prevent carbon monoxide from building up within the home.  Carbon monoxide is an odorless and colorless gas that causes the death of 150 people each year in the United States.  Symptoms of moderate CO poisoning include headache, fatigue, shortness of breath, nausea, and dizziness.  In cases of severe CO poisoning symptoms will include, confusion, vomiting, loss of muscle control, loss of consciousness and death.  If you or anyone you know starts complaining of these symptoms please call 911 and evacuate the house immediately so that the residence can be safely checked out by Fire District Personnel.

 Finally if a generator is being used to help power a home or portable heater, please leave it outside.  The Pacific Fire Protection District would like to ask everyone to be safe this winter season and if anyone has questions regarding safe heating practices, please call your local Fire District, it is our pleasure to assist.
