Safety reminders as fall arrives
If you haven’t taken measures to service your home heating equipment already, a reminder that it is important to do so. It’s vital that an annual service of furnaces and wood stove is conducted to ensure safe operation.
It is also time to consider changing batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Additionally, every family should have an escape plan with a location where all family members will meet in case of an emergency in effect.
