Holiday Decorating Tips

Holiday decorating is fun but there are some safety precautions you should consider.

  1. Use fire-resistant decorations- check your artificial tree to make sure it is fire-resistant. Do not place decorations near candles or fire.
  2. Keep your tree fresh– if a real tree is your choice, be sure to keep it fresh. Dry trees are a serious fire danger. Keep your tree at least THREE feet away from a heat source.
  3. Do not overload extension cords-never plug more than three strands of lights into one extension cord. Always unplug lights when you are not home.
  4. Do not block exits– make sure exits are clear in the case of a fire.
