Heating systems, bonfires, and excess leaves can all potentially lead to catastrophic fire damage. By practicing our safety tips, you and your family can easily stay warm and prevent costly fire damage this fall season.

Cooler weather usually means snuggling up by the campfire and hosting cookouts. Open fires and gas grills are staples for fall activities, but they also pose fire threats. Be sure to practice the following safety tips when celebrating with an outdoor fire or grilling in the backyard.
