NFPA, USFA, ESFI host winter safety Twitter chat


By Lauren Backstrom

Each year, NFPA and USFA team up to remind you that the winter months are the leading time of year for home fires in our Put a Freeze on Winter Fires campaign. To help you stay safe, we provide a wealth of safety tips and information on cooking, heating, candles and holiday decorating – factors that contribute to the increased risk of home fires in the months ahead.

This Wednesday, at 2:00pm ET, NFPA and USFA will join forces with ESFI to host a Twitter chat all about winter safety. We will discuss many important winter home fire topics and the ways to stay safe, and encourage all to follow along, and even submit questions of your own!

Please use #WinterSafety to follow along and to submit questions to the chat. We look forward to a fun discussion with you all!
