Avoiding a disaster during a power outage in Aspen, Colorado

6/2/2022 (Permalink)

During power outages in the winter, it's critical to prepare for and protect your house, company, and family, as many threats can go unreported.

Unattended candles can rapidly become a catastrophe, potentially causing a structural fire. The safer option is using flashlights or other battery-operated lighting solutions that do not contain an open flame. This means you should always have extra batteries on hand. If candles are your only alternative, make sure the fire is never left unattended and that the candle is kept in a fireproof holder away from combustible things and drafts.

During power outages, fire threats aren't the only danger. Indoor barbecues or generators can potentially cause carbon monoxide poisoning, which is exceedingly dangerous. However, if these devices are used in confined spaces such as homes, garages, or sheds, the result could be fatal. Because carbon monoxide cannot be seen, smelled, or tasted, it can go undiscovered. It's possible that a person will not recognize they've been poisoned until it's too late.

According to the manufacturer's instructions, these items must be used only outside, in a well-ventilated environment.

If your house or company has been damaged by fire, smoke, or water, our highly trained technicians and customer service representatives are available 24/7 to assist you.
