Spreading Safety Awareness  

National Chimney Safety Week is a public awareness event that starts at the end of September and kicks off October. Geared toward maintaining safe chimneys, it is hosted every year by the CSIA. This event is followed by another week-long effort geared toward general fire prevention by the NFPA (National Fire Protection Association).

Understanding how to safely maintain a working fireplace and preventing fires go hand in hand. Our team helps to raise awareness all year long, but during Chimney Safety Week (and the remainder of the Month of October) we release additional content and a series of posts to help the community learn more about chimney safety and preventing fires in your home.

But first a little history…

What is National Chimney Safety Week?

National Chimney Safety Week was started by the Chimney Safety Institute of America (CSIA), a nonprofit organization, run by a board of volunteers dedicated to the education, training, and certification of chimney industry professionals.

CSIA has been the industry leader in chimney and dryer vent maintenance education since 1983. Their ultimate goal is to inform the public about the danger of chimney fires and other problems related to the maintenance and performance of chimney and venting systems.

Getting Involved in Chimney Safety

Our local Kansas City company is proud to employ 15+ CSIA Certified Chimney Sweeps and a handful of support staff. Part of our team’s mission is to help spread awareness to the public. It is with that motivation that we put forth our best efforts to educate homeowners on how to use their fireplaces and gas appliances safely and understand the role that annual inspections play in the health of your home’s chimneys.

Many homeowners do not know how critical an annual chimney service is to maintain the homes resale value, but more importantly to keep the family that lives in the home safe. It’s our job as industry professionals to get the word out to our local KC residents.

An Old PSA is Still as Relevant Today as it Was Back Then… 

Check out this Fun Retro Public Service Announcement (featuring a surprising voice that almost everyone knows. but we’re not telling who)…

Tune in to our Facebook and Twitter pages to get linked to more information from the chimney and fire prevention industries as it’s released.

Stay Safe everyone! #chimneysafetyweek #fireprevention
