Have a fire escape plan. Know what you will do if a fire were to happen in your home. Remember, most fires can be prevented.
Test your smoke alarm and when you change your clocks this month; change your smoke alarm battery. The two largest known causes of fire in Wisconsin are heating systems and cooking. Inspect your furnace and keep the area around it clean. Always maintain watch when preparing food and keep your stove clean of towels, napkins and potholders.
All of the kitchen stove fires to which we have been called could have been prevented! For questions about fire safety, please feel free to call the Fire Department at 715-395-1680.
