Stay Safe During the Holidays

Home fires are common during the holidays, many the result of holiday lighting.
Test your smoke detectors to make sure they’re working properly and replace any that have stopped working.

Keep live trees adequately watered. If you can pull needles from a tree with little effort, the tree needs more water.

If you’re using an artificial tree make certain that it is fire rated.

Look carefully at all strings of lights before you hang them. Replace any with frayed wiring. Covering frayed wires with electrical tape isn’t worth the risk to your home.

Stay Safe During the Holidays

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, about 160 decorating-related injuries happen every day during the holiday season, with more than half involving falls.

When installing decorations, use the right ladder for the job, and make sure the ladder is secure before climbing.

Before hosting guests, make certain that walkways are well-lighted and that they are clear of ice, snow or leaf debris that can become slippery when wet.

If you have decorations that require power, make certain that you use weighted strips that will both conceal and hold steady any electrical cords that can be a tripping hazard.
