According to the National Fire Protection Association, nearly half of all home heating fires occur in the winter months of December, January, and February. 

A vast majority of fatal home heating fire deaths involved stationary or portable space heaters. 

In the WRGA Podcast video above, we spoke with the Rome Floyd Fire and Life Safety Educators Linda Patty and Shasta Farrer about how you (and your family) can prevent fires due to home heating.
