SafetyTIPS: Winter Holiday Fire Safety

2 Comments

 

Winter Holiday Fire Safety 

 

There is no place like home for the holidays.  A few simple steps will keep your home safe for your family and guests for this holiday season.

 

Tree Safety

  • Never use candles as decorations.
  • Keep tree away from heat.
  • Never place a tree in front of an exit door or in a pathway leading to an exit.
  • Water a cut tree daily.
  • Use a “non-tip” style tree stand.
  • Use only fire retardant decorations.
  • Never leave a lit tree unattended.
  • Dispose of your tree properly, soon after the holiday before needles dry out.
  • Artificial trees should have a fire retardant label.

Keep the Season Bright...Watch Those Lights!

  • Unplug all lighting before retiring for the evening or leaving the house.
  • Blow out candles before leaving the room.
  • Don't leave candles burning unattended.
  • Purchase lights and electric decorations which are listed by an approved testing agency.
  • Check all lighting for frayed wires, broken plugs, sockets, etc.
  • Never overload outlets. Use no more than three strands of lights on a single extension cord.
  • Never use candles on trees, near live or other flammable decorations.
  • Never hang lights on a metallic tree.
  • Always use appropriate weatherproof lights outdoors.

It’s not about saving lives; it’s about saving your life.
