Do you want to be Scooter’s Valentine?

Hi friends,

Will you be my Valentine? I could really use a Valentine (or a bunch) this year!

If you’d like to be my Valentine, here’s what you can do to make me feel extra special:

  1. From now through the end of February, make sure your parents check before they burn.
  2. Tell your parents to make sure your chimney gets cleaned.
  3. Try not to inhale any smoke – if you are sitting around a fire pit and the smoke is blowing toward you, move to a different spot.
  4. If you have a wood-burning fireplace in your home, ask your parents to consider switching to an electric or gas fireplace. Here’s how to do it:
  5. Never burn garbage or wrapping paper in your fireplace.
  6. Do not leave a fire burning if you are going to bed – not even a candle.

You are all doing such a wonderful job helping me to reduce wood smoke pollution this winter! If you have any questions about Check Before You Burn you can email me at!

Your pal,
