When the weather turns cold, it can bring a chill into our homes. Portable space heaters have become a popular way to supplement central heating or heat one room. If you plan to use portable electric space heaters, make sure to follow these tips and recommendations:
-Purchase a heater with the seal of a qualified testing laboratory.
-Keep the heater at least 3 feet away from anything that can burn, including people.
-Choose a heater with a thermostat and overheat protection.
-Place the heater on a solid, flat surface.
-Make sure your heater has an auto shut-off to turn the heater off if it tips over.
-Keep space heaters out of the way of foot traffic. Never block an exit.
-Keep children away from the space heater.
-Plug the heater directly into the wall outlet. Never use an extension cord.
- Space heaters should be turned off and unplugged when you leave the room or go to bed.

On behalf of myself, the dedicated members of the Saint Clair Fire Department (SCFD), and their families we welcome you to our website. Our mission and goal for this forum is to provide valuable and timely information regarding our department, safety tips, and call statistics.
The SCFD is charged with the responsibility of providing professional and efficient fire suppression, emergency preparedness, emergency medical services, fire prevention, and public education to our community. Our goal is to provide the highest level of service in the most efficient manner possible; to constantly safeguard and preserve life and property against the elements of fire and disaster. We accomplish this through effective preparation, training and education; and to respond to all emergencies in a safe and timely manner with sufficient resources to address the situation.
Within this outstanding team, the SCFD is a key member in providing community safety. We accept and embrace this challenge with vigor and commitment. As the world evolves and the needs of our community changes, our mission has evolved to one that is not simply confined to “traditional” fire services. Therefore, our mission reflects a corresponding need for our fire department to think and operate in a more encompassing manner.
