“The center of the chimney business”

We take security seriously in the Chimney Safety Institute of America. We’ve got to. There are too many families experiencing hardship as the effect of damage that began with innocent intentions. Who would like to place a load of clothing in a dryer and afterwards must escape from your dwelling as a result of ventilation-associated blaze? When you expect to have soothing heat from a flickering fire on a chilly evening — just to be phoning 911, what happiness is there.

With that circumstance, we are constantly trying to get the people’s interest in a attempt to create knowledge.

This picture and report package in the journalism team of Doug McSchooler and Ryan Sabalow was aimed at our CSIA headquarters and exceptional it’s to have this kind of facility at the center of a warehouse district.

The report, on page A10 of the Star, gave multiple chances to us, scattered to get across security advice that has been supplied to them by CSIA staff, manager of instruction, including Ashley Eldridge.

Where the sweeps come in, that is. Accredited chimneysweeper usually charge between $100 to $300 for a cleaning as well as an inspection. Eldridge said, many chimneysweeper, also will advocate strategies to produce fire safe and houses more energy efficient.

Here was another helpful part of the narrative (a graphic and caption) that ran in the web variant of this article.


The Indy Star’s profile was published about two weeks following the same storyline in a Indianapolis area media outlet, WIBC 93.1-FM.
