Stay Warm & Safe for Winter
Cold weather from December through February brings the need for home heating, and sometimes for a little extra help from a fireplace or a space heater. Unfortunately, accidents involving fireplaces and heating equipment are a major cause of preventable home fires. County Fire urges county residents to keep safe while they keep warm. Following are some winter safety tips to help you stay warm safely.
Bonfire in the Village
Dec 2 – San Bernardino County Fire & the SBC Firefighters Association hosted its annual Bonfire at the Village of Lake Arrowhead to give the community a nice outing.
