Roanoke Fire-EMS1If you’re pulling out the space heater as temperatures head below zero tonight, Roanoke City Fire & EMS has a few tips. Don’t use extension cords – they normally are not designed to handle space heaters – keep the room well ventilated and make sure the space heater won’t tip over. Roanoke City’s fire prevention specialist, Tiffany Bradbury, also says clearing out room around the space heater is important.
