Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter Wednesday, Oct. 21, 2015 15la The Plumas County Office of Emergency Services and area fire departments are reminding people that it can be dangerous to dispose of fireplace, wood stove or barbecue ashes. Embers, often concealed in what appears to be cold ashes, can remain hot enough to kindle a fire for several days. It is recommended to wait at least four days before disposing of ashes. "With the extremely dry conditions we have been experiencing, everyone should be extra vigilant with ash disposal,', said Jerry Sipe, Plumas County OES Director. "Hot ashes have caused structure fires when left next to a home, garage, deck, or When dumped on pine needles or other flammable materials." To safely dispose of ashes: - Put discarded ashes in a heavy metal container, douse with water and cover with a fitted metal lid. After sitting for a week, check them again to be sure that they are cool. If so, the ashes are then safe for disposal. -Store the container outside and away from structures, decks, fences, woodpiles and other combustible materials. - Never use a vacuum cleaner to pick up ashes. - Never put ashes in bags or boxes. As the fall and winter heating season approaches, remember to regularly inspect and clean chimneys. Soot and creosote are combustible materials that accumulate inside chimneys and create a dangerous fire hazard unless they are removed. Consider updating older wood stoves or fireplaces to a more efficient heat source. Newer wood stoves that are EPA compliant produce more heat and less pollution. Other general fire safety tips for the home heating season: - Make sure working smoke alarms are installed on every level of a home, outside each sleeping area, and inside each bedroom. Test alarms at least once a month. - Keep anything that can burn at least three feet from space heaters and other heat sources. - Keep candles and matches out of the reach of children. - Extinguish all fires, even candles, when you leave the room or go to sleep. - Remember to call 911 for all fires, no matter how small. Following these f'n'e safety tips can save lives and property. Where do I turn for hel Bullied? Harassed? At the End of Your Rope? The Plumas-Sierra ..... .....
