Fire Prevention

Be fire safety conscious! Do not use extension cords for long term use or space heaters. Be sure to turn off all appliances when an office is unoccupied.  Become familiar with the use of a fire extinguisher in order to put out fires smaller than a waste paper basket. Don’t accumulate combustibles in storage areas and/or hallways.  See Fire Safety section of this site for more details regarding fire prevention.
