Page 8--Tbe etabenta imt--November 27, 2003 Home heating safety tips from NFPA If you plan to use a portable or fixed space heater this winter to offset high heating bills---use extreme caution. Two of every three home heating fires in the U.S. in 1999, and five of every six related deaths, were attributed to space heating equipment, according to a report released recently by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) entitled U.S. Home Heating Fire Patterns and Trends. Some Facts and Figures from NFPA: * In 1999, there were 48,800 heating equipment-related home fires reported to U.S. fire departments, resulting in 301 deaths, 1,383 injuries and $606.5 million in property dam- age. * Heating equipment is a leading cause of home fires dur- ing the months of December, January and February, and trails only cooking equipment in home fires year-round. All t)Tes of cormnon space heating equip- ment are involved in honw fires: portable electric heaters, port- able kerosene heaters, wood stoves, fireplaces with inserts, and room gas heaters. * Central home heating sys- tems are not a large part of the total heating fire problem, but space heaters are. Giving space heaters space--placing them three feet away from anything that can bum--and paying close attention whenever any ,;upple- mental heating device is in use can drastically reduce these types of fires. * Room gas heaters, port- able kerosene heaters and port- able electric heaters have the greatest risk of death. Room gas heaters pose a similar risk of death from unvented carbon monoxide. Wood stoves or fire- places with inserts have the greatest risk of property damage from fire. Leading reasons for fires starting with space heaters are: * Lack of regular cleaning, leading to creosote build-up in wood-burning devices and asso- ciated chimneys and connectors: * Failing to give space heat- ers space by installing or placing them too close to combustibles; * Basic flaws in the con- struction or design of wood- burning heating equipment; and *Fueling errors involving liquid- or gas-fueled heating equipment. Safety Tips: * When buying a new unit, make sure that a qualified tech- nician installs the unit or checks that the unit has been installed properly, and that it carries the mark of an independent testing lab (such as Underwriters Labo- ratmy) * For wood or coal stoves or fLreplaces, have a professional inspect the chimney, chimney connector and other related equipment every year, and have them cleaned as often as the inspections indicate. Also, a sturdy screen will keep sparks from flying into the room. * Keep space heaters at least three feet away from anything that can burn * Fuel portable kerosene heaters in a well-ventilated area away from flames or other heat sources, and only when the device has cooled completely. Use only the type of kerosene specified by the manufacturer, and never use gasoline. * When turning a heating device on or off, follow the manufacturer&apos;s instructions. When buying heaters, choose devices with automatic shut-off features. * Make sure any gas-fueled heating device is adequately ven- tilated. Unventilated gas space heaters in bedrooms or bath- room must be small and wall- First Day International Festival 2004 A "truly unique" family ori- ented Festival will occur after the Shanghai Day Parade on January 1 in Lewisburg.
