Safety Tip for the home from the Safety Committee
Posted on Nov 14, 2018

Before you go to sleep, be sure your fireplace is out.  NEVER close your damper with hot ashes in the fireplace.  A closed damper will help the fire to heat up again and will force toxic carbon monoxide into the house.
If you are using wood pellets, propane gas or firewood this Winter, remember that they
all produce Carbon Monoxide. Carbon Monoxide is colorless, tasteless, odorless and deadly.
  Install Carbon Monoxide detectors in your home at a height of 5 feet from the floor.
