SafetyTIPS: Winter Holiday Fire Safety



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.

i’m very hapy today to share this amazing testimony as Dr. Ohioze the herbal doctor was able to cure me from my Herpes Virus with his herbal medicine. i am Arthur from Atlanta.Georgia ,I was been a diagnosed of Hsv2 for a period of 2 years and have tried different methods of treatment to ensure that I was cured of this terrible disease, but none worked for me, i so much believed there’s a cure out there somewhere and we’ve been blinded to the facts that medical doctors hides that from us, i was really desperate as I was losing almost everything due to my illness, A few months ago while I was checking the internet I saw different recommendation about Dr. Ohioze on how he have been using his herbal Medicine to treat and cure people, I contacted him and I told him how I got his contact and also about my herpes virus, after some time he told me not to worry that he would prepare for me his herbal medicine, he told me I would take this medicine for a week and also

asked for my home address to send the herbal medicine through courier service FedEx to me, after the process and everything i received the delivery from FedEx, I took it as i was directed by Dr. Ohioze during the one week, while on medication I
began to experience changes in my body, I had to call my doctor at the
hospital for a type-specific blood test, after the test the doctor told me that
I wasn’t having herpes virus,not a trace of the virus in my blood or my nerves , I really couldn’t even believe it . i’m so grateful Dr Ohioze

Please read, follow and share for others to know about the cure for HIV virus. I’m here to testify on how I was cured from HIV virus with the use of herbs. I got the herbs from Dr Omosun and he gave me instructions on how to use them. I took the herbal product for few weeks after which I went for a blood test and the result was Negative. I waited for another 6 months and retested the result was still Negative and my doctor told me I’m completely free from HIV deadly virus and this Gladys my heart and i wish to share it for the benefit of those living with the virus to also get the herbs from Dr Omosun and get cured just like me.

El Dr. Omosun ha curado a muchas personas con sus suplementos a base de hierbas naturales y soy uno de ellos. Sufrí del virus VIH durante más de 6 años. Probé muchos medicamentos pero nada funcionó, estaba cansada por tener que ir de un hospital a otro. Estaba navegando por Facebook y vi muchos testimonios sobre Omosun ha curado tantos remedios herbales del Dr. Omosun y lo contacté, le expliqué mi problema y me aseguró que hay una solución con remedios naturales, me aconsejó. sobre cómo obtener la medicina herbaria y su uso. Recibí mi pedido a través de logística de UPS después de 3 días de la compra. Después de semanas de usar el producto a base de hierbas, fui a hacerme una prueba según las instrucciones del Dr. y el resultado me declaró libre de la enfermedad mortal del VIH. Hoy estoy totalmente libre del virus mortal y gracias al Dr. Omosun. Póngase en contacto con el Dr. Omosun Herbal home hoy por correo electrónico
