6 Holiday Fire Safety Tips

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.
