Kernel Safety says…..Only YOU can prevent fires caused by electric space heaters!
Do not use standard household extension cords with electric space heaters. They are not sized to carry the amount of electrical current required by the heater.
Plug electric space heaters directly into a properly wired and grounded wall outlet.
Read and follow all of the manufacturer’s safety instructions.
Keep the heater away from combustible materials, including drapes, curtains, furniture, clothes, newspapers, magazines, books, etc.
Absent specific safety instructions, allow at least 3 feet between the heater and any combustible materials
If your space heater does not have a tip-over protection shut-off switch, replace it NOW.
Keep children away from all space heaters.
If your space heater is noisy, has missing parts, or has simply seen its better days, replace it.
Texting while driving is illegal in Illinois and many other states. Cell phone use while driving is also prohibited in Illinois unless you are using a hands-free device.
In the Spring 2013 issue of CIMply Safety, be sure to read the article entitled “Beware of Cons who are Pros.” There are many good local contractors. Unfortunately, storms often bring out unscrupulous “contractors” who watch weather reports and swoop into storm-damaged areas to try to make quick money before they disappear. You can read an extended paper on this subject under the Customer Service > Claims tab above entitled “Beware of Unscrupulous Contractors.”

Why Choose A Mutual?
The mutual concept is the essence of insurance. As a policyholder, you agree to share in the losses of others in exchange for the peace of mind knowing others will share in your losses. You become a member of your mutual.
The company board of directors and staff work to facilitate the day-to-day operations and to strengthen the company. We exist to serve our policyholders rather than to provide a return on investment to outside stockholders.
