Half of home heating fires are reported during the months of December, January and February!

Install wood burning stoves following manufacturer’s instructions or have a professional do the installation. All fuel-burning equipment should be vented to the outside to avoid carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning.

Install and maintain Carbon Monoxide alarms to avoid the risk of CO poisoning. If you smell gas in your gas heater, do not light the appliance. Leave the home immediately and call your local fire department or gas company. Make sure to inspect your gas system, if you find that it’s not working properly then you can look for dyna glo kerosene heater parts to see if you can fix it yourself or if you have to hire a professional.
