There is something about the winter months and curling up
with a good book by the fireplace. But did you know that heating
equipment is a leading cause of home fire deaths? With a few simple safety tips and precautions you can prevent most heating fires from happening.
Heating Equipment Smarts
Install wood burning stoves following
manufacturer’s instructions or have a professional do the
installation. All fuel-burning equipment should be vented
to the outside to avoid carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning.
If you smell gas in your gas heater, do not light the
appliance. Leave the home immediately
and call your local fire department or gas company.
Thank You All So Much!!

The Dangers of Carbon Monoxide
Install at least one carbon monoxide alarm with an audible warning signal near the sleeping areas and outside individual bedrooms. Make sure the alarm has been evaluated by a nationally recognized laboratory, such as Underwriters Laboratories (UL). Carbon monoxide alarms measure levels of CO over time and are designed to sound an alarm before an average, healthy adult would experience symptoms. It is very possible that you may not be experiencing symptoms when you hear the alarm. This does not mean that CO is not present.
Have a qualified professional check all fuel burning appliances, furnaces, venting and chimney systems at least once a year.
Never use your range or oven to help heat your home and never use a charcoal grill or hibachi in your home or garage.
Never keep a car running in a garage. Even if the garage doors are open, normal circulation will not provide enough fresh air to reliably prevent a dangerous buildup of CO.
When purchasing an existing home, have a qualified technician evaluate the integrity of the heating and cooking systems, as well as the sealed spaces between the garage and house. The presence of a carbon monoxide alarm in your home can save your life in the event of CO buildup.
Help prevent wildfires!
A combination of strong winds, low humidity, dry conditions, and warming temperatures this time of year has the potential to create explosive wildfires. The main cause of wildfires is improper burning of debris such as trash and brush piles. Please help prevent wildfires!
The Missouri Department of Conservation urges people not to conduct outdoor burning during times when grasses, brush and other fire fuel are very dry, humidity is low and weather is windy. Check with local fire departments regarding burn bans that may be in place. Call 911 at the first sign of a fire getting out of control and help stop arson by calling Operation Forest Arson at 800-392-1111.

DID YOU KNOW:
During the spring and summer months in the St. Louis Area, we have many days of high temperatures, strong winds, and low humidity. These factors and intermittent rainfall can lead to dangerous grass and brush fires.
Per Missouri Department of Natural Resources Regulations-
St. Louis Metropolitan Area: Open burning of trees, tree leaves or brush is allowed only in areas outside of incorporated municipalities from Sept. 16 to April 14 of each calendar year. These brush piles are limited to a base of 16 square feet and the burning is allowed from 10 a.m. through 4 p.m..
We always ask that Eureka Fire Protection District residents contact Engine House 1 at 636-938-5505 before burning so we may know about it first. Eureka Fire Protection District does not issue burn or bonfire permits, but we may advise you not to burn at any particular time due to conditions.
For more information, you can download a hotsheet with safety tips and state and local regulatory rules on open burning.
Have you ever thought about how you will communicate with and locate your loved ones in the event of a disaster? You never know where you will be or with whom you will be when a disaster strikes. This week, the focus for National Preparedness Month is, “How to Reconnect with Family After a Disaster.” Use this time to build a family communications plan. Your priority will be to get to a safe place, contact your loved ones and reunite with them as soon as possible. The best course of action is to have a plan for each of the common locations where you spend most of your time – home, work, gym, or place of worship.
Below are some tips on how to get in contact with your loved ones in an emergency.
Check out America’s PrepareAthon! to participate in other drills and exercises with your family, and practice the communications plan you just developed as part of National Preparedness Month.
