Civil Defence deals with 20 heater accidents during cold snap

Amman, The Civil Defense Directorate (CDD) said Monday it dealt with 20 heater-related accidents during last week’s snow storm in the Kingdom, which left 4 people dead and injured 52.

The CDD’s media spokesman said that such accidents have increased recently despite civil defence warnings about the use of heaters and taking preventive measures and the necessary safety precautions.

He again called for the safe use of the various types of heating devices, not leave the heater burning during sleep, ensure the proper ventilation of rooms and places, checking the wires in electric heaters, not overload the power socket and check the hose in gas heaters.
