(December 9, 2013) The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the United States Fire Administration (USFA) are teaming up on a campaign to promote fire safety during winter months. “Put a Freeze on Winter Fires” is aimed at raising awareness of winter fire risks and providing tools and information that can be used to reduce these risks.
The campaign focuses on cooking fire safety and heating fire safety. NFPA and USFA offer 10 Tips to Get Ahead of the Winter Freeze, a printable checklist of reminders, such as checking that vents have been cleaned and inspected and furnaces have been inspected and serviced.
