6 Holiday Fire Safety Tips
Whether trimming a tree or lighting candles, stay fire safe this holiday season!
December is the peak time of year for home candle fires, according to the National Fire Protection Association, and live Christmas trees can also pose a fire risk. Follow these tips to stay safe this holiday season.
1 Lit candles should not be placed in windows where blinds or curtains could catch fire.
2 Do not leave a lit menorah or any other lit candle unattended.
3 Examine cords and lights for signs of damage. Frayed electric cords should be discarded.
4 Place your menorah on a sturdy surface, out of the reach of children and pets.
5 Make sure your tree is at least three feet away from any heat source.
6 Trim the tree’s stump by at least two inches and allow it to absorb water for 24 hours before bringing it inside. Refill the water reservoir daily.
