Seasonal Cheer Without Fire Fear

Holiday Tree and Decoration TipsKeep your home protected this festive season with fire safety!

December brings wonder, excitement, and joy. While holiday lights, cinnamon-scented candles, and a perfectly decorated Christmas tree is only part of the festive fun, they pose a large fire threat. Not keen on your home burning to a crisp over the holiday period? Utilize these tips!
  • Keep your Christmas tree well-watered. (Plus: don’t get it too early! Trees should last around two weeks.)
  • Check that the needles won’t fall off the tree (too readily) before buying.
  • Place your tree away from the fireplace, heat vents, and candles!
  • Inspect your lights for exposed wires, worn wires, and broken sockets before decorating.
  • Never use lights outside when the sockets or prongs are wet from rain, snow, or ice.
  • Always turn off lights when you leave the house or go to bed.
  • Don’t chop your tree and burn it in your fireplace or yard. Recycle the chopped wood instead!
  • Always blow out candles and extinguish fires before leaving the house or going to bed.
