Christmas Tree Safety During The Holidays
Dated: December 6 2018
Although it is one of the most joyous times a year, the holidays tend to see a dramatic increase in fires in residential homes. Here are a few tips to make sure your season is merry and bright!
The NFPA and several fire departments recommend the following safety tips:
Make sure string lights have no loose connections, cracked lamps or frayed cords.
Use only a single extension cord that can reach your home's outlet without being too long and being tangled.
Use UL-approved lights and cords.
Make sure lights are off when you go out and before you turn in for the night.
Make sure all outdoor light connectors are away from metal rain gutters and off the ground.
Never use candles to light or decorate a tree.
To lessen the chance of a fire hazard, purchase a freshly cut tree.
Make sure to keep your tree at least three feet away from any heat source.
Water the tree every day, and remove it from your home after Christmas or once it becomes dry.
Don't burn Christmas tree branches or wrapping paper in your fireplace.
Keep candles at least 12 inches away from anything that could burn.
Wishing you all a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS and a SAFE, HAPPY and HEALTHY NEW YEAR!!
