Autumn Safety


Autumn is a time for harvest and hunting, warm days and cool nights, thanksgiving and spending time with family.Read more safety messages...

Since the weather is getting cooler and the daylight hours are growing shorter, it is becoming necessary once again to heat our homes. There are safety issues with most types of home heating. Become aware of some of the hazards of home heating by visiting the National Fire Protection Association website.

Many people in Lincoln County heat with wood or some use other forms of heat, such as electric space heaters, that could cause combustion. With the cooler weather at hand, now is a good time to take a look at your home smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. Remember to change the batteries on those when you change your clocks back one hour. For some important information on smoke detectors, please visit our smoke alarm web page.

Below are links to some web sites that provide additional information about safety during the autumn season:
