Fall is one of the best seasons to be in Colorado. With pleasant days and cool, crisp nights coming soon, many residents are already planning for the cooler days.

For you that might mean sipping a pumpkin latte, going on a hayride or relaxing in front of a roaring bonfire. Whatever your plans, don’t neglect taking simple steps to protect your home from a common fall safety threat—house fires.

House fires can happen at any time, but the reality is that most happen in the fall and winter months. So, with that in mind, it’s smart to be sure you’re taking the steps you need to take to protect your home and family.

Change Your Smoke Detector Batteries

Having reliable smoke detectors in your home is one of the best ways to protect your family. It’s smart to keep smoke detectors in every bedroom, and to check them regularly so that they’re ready and working in case of an emergency.

If you have problems remembering when you need to change the batteries in your smoke detectors (and many people do), a good rule of thumb is to switch them every spring and fall when you change your clocks.

Keeping Fall Fun and Safe

If you’re looking forward to a mug of hot apple cider in front of your fireplace, then the upcoming cooler temperatures are just what you need. But before you light your first fire of the season, be sure to have your fireplace and chimney checked out by a professional. You want to know they’re safe and working properly before you enjoy a fire.

While you’re having your chimney and fireplace inspected, ask your inspector to check your furnace and any other heating system in your home. If they’re working well, they are less likely to cause a fire.

Depending on where you live, bonfires can be a big part of the fall tradition—and a great way to roast hotdogs or make s’mores. If you’re planning a bonfire, be sure to do it safely.

One of the best ways to ensure your bonfire doesn’t become an emergency is to keep an eye on it. Don’t leave a burning fire unattended in your yard.
