    Fire Prevention Week Reminders

    The year’s Fire Prevention Week campaign runs from October 4-10. As the longest running public health and safety observance on record, this national event provides a great reminder of the importance of fire prevention. What began as a commemoration of the Great Chicago Fire of 1871 has today become an opportunity to keep fire safety a priority for all.

    To mark this annual event, Lindemann Chimney Service has compiled a few fire safety reminders for you and your family:

    • Keep fire protection equipment in the home. Smoke alarms should be located on each floor and a fire extinguisher should be easily accessible.
    • Develop a family fire escape plan.
    • Have chimneys and woodstoves cleaned annually to remove excess creosote – a highly-flammable combustion by-product.
    • Discuss with children the common fire dangers within the home such as lighters and candles.
    • Avoid the deadly effects of carbon monoxide poisoning by installing carbon monoxide detectors on each level of the home.
    • Two out of every five home fires start in the kitchen. Use caution when using kitchen appliances and never leave the area unattended while cooking.
