Post subject: Roaring fires can lead to roaring sirens  PostPosted: Sep 11, 2005 - 07:49 AM

Roaring fires can lead to roaring sirens

Now that there's a chill in the air, indoor woodstoves, fireplaces and wood furnaces are in use again.

Though few things are more pleasant than enjoying a roaring fire on a cold night, precautions must be taken to avoid mishap.

As Canada's leader in first aid training and products, safety is top priority for St. John Ambulance. You should make it your prime concern too. Here are some helpful ideas to ensure you don't get caught by flame.

Have your fireplace or woodstove, and chimney, cleaned and checked seasonally.

Never attempt to burn green, fresh wood.
Never use chemicals to start an indoor fire.
Make sure the fire area is properly ventilated.

Keep the area around the fireplace or woodstove clear. Don't stack wood under or beside a woodstove.
Use fireproof flooring materials under and around woodstoves and in front of fireplaces.
Never overload the burning area.
Make sure your fireplace is enclosed in a screen or other fireproof barrier.
Keep a fire extinguisher in the same room, readily accessible.
Never leave a fire unattended.
Keep small children and pets away from sources of flame or intense heat.
