While you're running to your thermostat to crank up the heat in your house, keep these tips in mind to avoid a potential disaster.
The Firefighters Association of the State of New York (FASNY) is once again reminding everyone the importance of heating safety this time of year. Even though it's the coldest between December and February, this is also when nearly half of all heating equipment fires happen.
FASNY President Edward Tase, Jr. says homeowners should also be weary of carbon monoxide exposure during the winter months.
