12 Days of Firewise—Tip #5: Move firewood away from your house

Blog Post created by lisamariesinatra Employee on Dec 17, 2012

It’s the 5th day of our "12 Days of Firewise" campaign and we have our newest safety tip for you!

Firewood stacked by the house can help keep your home cozy during winter. However, as the snow melts and days become drier, the fire danger they pose is high. NFPA's Firewise Regional Advisor, Heidi Wagner, reminds us to move the firewood away from the home, fence or deck.

Don’t forget to check back each day for a new safety tip and video. You can visit the "12 Days of Firewise" webpage to view any of the previous videos and download the safety tip sheet.
