Electric Portable Heaters

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that more than 25,000 residential fires every year are associated with the use of mobile room heaters (electric and gas), resulting in more than 300 deaths and an estimated 6,000 people receiving hospital treatment for burn injuries. A stark reminder to follow the instructions!!

Allow plenty of space around heating devices, especially fan heaters, as they need to draw in air, and blocking them can cause them to overheat or even catch fire.
