Holiday decorating safety

It’s fun to decorate for the winter holidays, but holiday decorations can increase your risk of a home fire. Check out the info graphic on decorating safely. In addition, as you decorate, keep these tips in mind from FEMA and the U.S. Fire Administration:

  • Inspect holiday lights each year before you put them up. Throw away light strands with frayed or pinched wires. • Consider using battery-operated flameless candles, which can look, smell and feel like real candles. • If you do use lit candles, make sure they are in stable holders, out of reach of children, and placed where they cannot be knocked down easily. Never leave them unattended; extinguish them before leaving the house or going to bed. • Water your Christmas tree every day. A dry tree is dangerous because it can catch on fire easily. For a visual reminder of just how flammable a dry tree can be, watch this short video:
