Celebrate Safely this Holiday Season
When we think of the holidays, we think of spending time with family, friends and the ones we love most. Some of our favorite things to do are setting up our Christmas trees, lighting candles, putting lights on the house or even baking cookies and other delicious treats. What we don’t think about is if these things are not used properly things can go from festive to frightening fast. Here are so holiday tips and tricks.
- Place your Christmas tree at least three feet away from the fireplaces heating ducts and other heating elements real or fake.
- Make sure your string of lights are in good condition. Make sure the lights and electrical cords don’t have a short, frayed wires.
- Always unplug your Christmas tree before bed or leaving the home.
- When baking keeps anything that can catch fire away from burners and the oven. Such as potholders, wooden spoons, paper or plastic bags and kitchen towels.
