As residents keep warm on cold days, keep in mind that heating fires are the second leading cause of home fires. Take a minute to review safety tips that will help prevent a fire in your home:

•Keep items that can catch on fire at least 3 feet away from anything that gets hot, such as space heaters.
•Never smoke in bed.
•Talk to your children regularly about the dangers of fire, matches, and lighters and keep them out of reach.
•Turn portable heaters off when you leave the room or go to sleep.

The most effective way to protect yourself and your home from fire is to identify and remove fire hazards. About 65 percent of house fire deaths occur in homes with no working smoke alarms. During a home fire, working smoke alarms can save lives.

For more information on home fire safety, download the American Red Cross First Aid App, which provides tips on how to prevent home fires and on severe winter weather safety. This free app is available on the Apple iTunes or Google Play stores. Find all of the Red Cross apps at www.redcross.org/mobileapps.
