Earlier today, we learned that the St. Louis Fire Department talked about the importance of un-attended space heaters, on social media related to a previous City fire(s). This is a regional (MO/IL) problem. Heatupstlouis.org is opposed to the use of space heaters, as a primary heating source, let alone leaving them unattended. Wintertime has the highest incidents of fires in the U.S. in part due to unsafe methods of trying to stay warm each winter. We want area needy households, seniors and the disabled to obtain utility assistance help, to get reconnected ASAP to their primary, proven, and safe home heating source. The public can contact us at Heatupstlouis.org, through their cell or telephone lines.
