Blow it out!

There is only one time of the year that we here at the Chapter think candles are a swell idea… that’s right, your birthday!  Candles are one of the leading causes of house fires across the world, so the more we can do to keep from lighting them, the better. 

Did you know that when communities lose power, the percentage of house fires always increases over the next 48 hours? Why, you might ask? Because of the increased use of candles! To help prevent this, be sure to stock your emergency kit with batteries and flashlights (Be sure to store the batteries separate!) so that the next time you’re without power, you can light up a room without lighting up your entire house!

Brrrrrr! Is it just us here at the Chapter, or has it gotten cold out? With the recent snowy weather we are in winter preparedness mode here.  Are you prepared for a sudden snow storm and the possibility of being stranded in your car for up to 3 days before help arrives? We are! Our blankets, food, water, radio, extra gloves, hats and scarves are packed up and there for us if we’re faced with that type of emergency.  And we hope that you’re starting to prepare too because once you’re stuck in a snow pile, wishing you had packed a blanket won’t get you one!
Not sure what to pack? Check out our website for some kit making tips, or visit our store to order one.
