    • Have your chimney and fireplace inspected annually and cleaned if the sweep determine it needs cleaning.
    • Make sure your flue damper is open before lighting a fire.
    • Use seasoned dry wood (check out our Free Wood for Life).
    • Don’t leave your fireplace unattended.
    • Always use a fireplace spark screen on the front of your fireplace when burning.
    • If your fireplace has a glass door don’t let children or anyone touch the glass – it’s hot.
    • Don’t let children near the fireplace.
    • Make sure the pathway in front of the fireplace is clear so no one trips.
    • Keep decorations away from the fireplace when it’s in use.
    • Always dispose of ashes into an ash bucket with a tight fitting lid and double-bottom.
    • Don’t stack the logs too high – sometimes they have a tendency to tumble when they burn down.
    • With gas logs always make sure that your “brother-in-law” didn’t rearrange the logs while you were in the kitchen cooking. This can affect not only the flame of the logs, but can also cause sooting.

    Please keep these safety tips in mind when using your fireplace this Thanksgiving. And enjoy using it! With proper care, maintenance and attention you can use it for years to come.
