Pesach Fire Safety
It is critically important that we approach both Shabbat and Yom Tov with a heightened sense of Fire Safety awareness. Jewish tradition, as expressed in the Talmud, insists that we be 
even more vigilant about eliminating safety hazards from our home than we are about removing chametz.  In that spirit, please 
consider taking the following precautions :
 
As you go room-to-room doing pre-pesach cleaning or searching for chametz, make sure you have  working  smoke and carbon monoxide detectors  in the appropriate places.

As you check your pantry items for Kosher for Passover certification, make sure that any 
electrical appliances  (hot water urns, hotplates, lamps, etc.) you use for Shabbat bear the 'safety certification' of "UL"- Underwriters Laboratories.

When you light Shabbat, Yom Tov and Yahrtzeit candles, make sure that the surrounding area is clear of any substance that might be flammable. Consider using a 'child safety' lighter instead of matches, 
never leave a lighter or matches where a child could find them.
 
When using a hotplate, use a 
heavy duty wall-timer  to turn it on in the morning and off after lunch.
 
The 
search for chametz is best done using a flashlight , rather than a candle, because a flashlight provides better light AND allows you get into areas where you might (rightly) be hesitant to bring a candle.  If you feel you must use a candle, be very careful not to get too close to flammable material.
 
Where available, make use of a 
properly supervised communal Biur Chametz  (burning of Chametz), rather than making your own fire.  If you do make your own fire, be sure to follow proper fire safety protocol in doing so. See links below for details.
