Fire and Carbon Monoxide Safety this holiday/winter season

Temperatures have been dropping the past thirty days, which means most of our borrowers who live in Chicago and other cold weather states will be firing up their fire places.  It also means that snow and ice storms might knock out power and that people will be using generators to heat their homes.

I recently had Elk Grove Village Fire Chief Richard Mikel, President of Illinois Fire Chiefs Association on my show to discuss fire and carbon monoxide safety.  Chief Mikel has essential information on how to keep you and your family safe during this winter and holiday season, even if you don’t have a fire place.  To listen to the 11 minute segment click on this link.
