Put a Freeze on Winter Fires
Home fire fatalities increase during the winter. To make sure communities know about the increased risk, USFA partners with the National Fire Protection Association to Put a Freeze on Winter Fires. The initiative focuses on hazards that may increase a family’s risk of having a house fire.
In February, we are focusing on electrical fire safety, complementing the American Burn Association’s National Burn Awareness Week’s theme “Electrical Safety from Amps to Zap (A to Z)!” The National Burn Awareness Week is February 7 – 13.
