    FIRE SAFETY Info and TIPS of the WEEK

    If you use an electric heater, be sure not to overload the circuit. Only use extension cords that have the necessary rating to carry the amp load. Tip: Choose an extension cord the same size or larger than the appliance electrical cord. Also avoid using electrical space heaters in bathrooms or other areas where they may come in contact with water.
