Space Heater Safety

The Irving Fire Department wants residents to keep safe and warm this winter. Please keep in mind these simple tips when using SPACE HEATERS in the home:

  • Be sure your space heater is in good working condition.
  • Space heaters need space. Keep or maintain a three-foot clearance between all heating equipment and anything that can burn.
  • Keep children and pets away from space heaters, especially when they are wearing night gowns or other loose clothing that can be easily ignited.
  • Portable space heaters should be turned off every time you leave the room and before going to bed.
  • Plug power cords only into outlets with sufficient capacity and never into an extension cord.
  • Inspect for cracked or broken plugs or loose connections. Replace before using.
  • Avoid using electrical space heaters in bathrooms or other areas where they may come in contact with water.
