January 7, 2013
While a warm home and a hot meal on a cold winter’s day may conjure up thoughts of safety and security, the unfortunate reality is that winter is the leading time of year for home fires in the United States (U.S.). That’s why the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) have teamed up to help prevent home fires in the winter months.
With home fires more prevalent in winter than in any other season, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) and the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) are sponsoring a joint initiative – Put a Freeze on Winter Fires – to help raise public awareness about winter fires.
