Holidays Safety

December holidays are the most fun and excited season of the year; however, they can also be the most dangerous. Based on the National Fire Protection Association website, approximately 6% of the reported fires that started with a Christmas tree resulted in death.

In order to avoid the deadly results, the following list is the top safety tips.

  1. Unplug Christmas tree lights before leaving home or going to sleep.
  2. Choose a strong tree stand designed not to tip over.
  3. Be sure to purchase a fire-retardant artificial tree.
  4. Place the tree away where it may block exits and from heat.
  5. Keep an eye on food. Don’t leave it unattended.
  6. Keep candles away from places and items that can catch fire.
  7. Keep matches and lights out of sight and reach of children.
  8. Make sure the lights cord does not come in contact with water.
  9. Use a fire screen.
