Winter Holiday Safety

Please remember to protect your family and friends this holiday season. Holiday lights, lit candles, holiday cooking in the kitchen and dead Christmas trees can pose risks. Use caution when entertaining and decorating your home or office.

Trees are beautiful for the holidays, but there have been several news articles recently about tragic fires resulting from Christmas trees. Check out the video to see the extreme difference in how fire affects a wet vs. a dry tree https://youtu.be/AZk4vIXCnc8. Be sure to read and follow the manufacturer’s instructions for lights and artificial trees, never let a live tree dry out, and always turn lights off on any tree or the exterior of your home when you leave home or go to sleep.
