The American Red Cross would like residents within the area covered by the Sandhills Chapter to follow these tips to avoid a fire during Peak Fire Season, which runs from October through March.
Never use an over or stove to heat your home.
If you are using a space heater, place it on a level, hard surface and keep anything flammable at least three feet away – things such as paper, clothing, bedding, curtains or rugs.
Turn off space heaters and make sure fireplace embers are out before leaving the room or going to bed.
If you are using a fireplace, use a glass or metal fire screen large enough to catch sparks and rolling logs.
Use generators correctly – never operate a generator inside the home, including in the basement or garage.
