With the onset of winter staring us in the face it is time to remind you of some safety precautions you can take to make your wintertime a safe time. The following tips from the Quincy Fire Department are recommended:

1. Never leave the kitchen area when cooking.  If you do leave, turn off the stove or oven.

2. Keep all space heaters at least three feet away from anything that can burn or ignite.

3. Replace and do NOT repair any damaged electrical cords in your home.

8. Never leave a burning candle unattended.
