More on Fire and Safety

  • Avoid using extension cords. If you must, make sure the cord is in good condition ­ not frayed, stretched or worn ­ and is out of the path of foot traffic.

  • If all the items to be plugged in are close together, try using a power bar or surge protector. But make sure not to overload the circuit, which can create a fire hazard... Shop All Power Bars & Surge Protectors!

  • Install peep-holes in exterior doors so you can see who is ringing the doorbell before you answer...Shop All Peep-Holes!

  • Keep clothing, upholstered furniture and draperies away from space heaters. Do not leave space heaters unattended - turn them off if you have to leave the room, even if you are only going to be gone for a few moments. Do not use space heaters while you are asleep...Shop All Space Heaters!

  • Use no-tip ashtrays to make sure burning cigarette butts stay where they belong. Do not use makeshift ashtrays - plastic cups, for example. If the material is not fireproof, it might not contain the burning cigarettes safely.
