A Reminder from Your Imperial Beach Fire Department.

Now that we are heading into the cooler months of the year let’s all do our best to prevent space heater burns and fires. Keep combustibles at least 3 feet away from a space heater. This includes curtains, bedding, paper, furniture, etc.

Plug your space heater directly into an outlet.

Never use a power strip or extension cord to power your space heater.

Turn space heaters off when you go to bed or leave the room.

Inspect for cracked or broken plugs or loose connections, and replace any before using.

Keep kids and pets at least 3 feet away from the space heater too.
