During this chilly holiday season, the University of Houston Fire Marshal’s Office wants to remind the UH community that the use of space heaters is prohibited.
That risk is compounded for a number of reasons, including:
“Some acceptable alternates to using space heaters are electric blankets or heating pads. Both are safer and use less electricity,” Fire Marshal Chris McDonald said.
If temperature extremes are an issue in someone’s office, they should contact FIX-IT Customer Service at 713-743-4948 or firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance via Utility Services.
