And, more than 60,000 young children end up in emergency rooms every year because they got into medicine.

The time to think about fire prevention safety is always; but especially as the weather starts to cool down and the time to turn on your home heating equipment arrives.

Implementing fire prevention safety measures can keep you and your family safe.
