Garage Safety Tips

  • Never store gasoline, paints or flammable liquids in your home.
  • Store gasoline outside your home or in a detached garage or shed in a well-ventilated area, and keep it stored in an approved container. Use it only as a motor fuel, never as a cleaning agent.
  • Store paint and other flammable liquids (turpentine, mineral spirits, varnishes, camp stove fuels, etc.) in their original containers with tight fitting lids. Store away from appliances, heaters, pilot lights and other sources of flame or heat.
  • Remember: never smoke near flammable liquids.
  • Always store propane cylinders outside.
  • Remove all trash from your house.  Never store trash near your furnace or heater.
