WINTER BRINGS RAIN, SNOW & FIRE

SIOUXLAND—THE HOLIDAYS BRING US FRIENDS, FAMILY AND A GREATER CHANCE OF FIRE.

SIOUX CITY FIRE RESCUE PUBLIC INFORMATION OFFICER JOE RODRIGUEZ SAYS WINTER IS A DANGEROUS TIME FOR FIRES, WITH FURNACES GOING, SPACE HEATERS LIT UP AND OUTLETS OVERLOADED.

RODRIGUEZ SAYS REAL TREES CAN CAUSE A FIRE HAZARD AS WELL, ESPECIALLY IF THEY’RE DRY, SO KEEP THEM MOIST AND AWAY FROM HEAT VENTS.

YOU MAY CREATE A HOLIDAY GLOW WITH CANDLES, BUT MAKE SURE THEY’RE IN A SAFE, MONITORED LOCATION.

RODRIGUEZ ENCOURAGES YOU TO HAVE A WORKING SMOKE ALARM ON EVERY LEVEL OF YOUR HOME AND TO CREATE AN EVACUATION PLAN.
