8 Ways to Avoid Holiday Fires

12/7/2017 (Permalink)

December is the peak time of year for fires. In particularly, candle fires. Listed below are 8 things you should not do this holiday season:

  1. Do not place candles on cluttered surfaces. Place them at least 12 inches away from anything that burns.
  2. Do not use flammable decorations.
  3. Do not place Christmas decor close to any heat source. Christmas trees and decor should be at least three feet away.
  4. Do not overload electrical outlets.
  5. Do not link more than three Christmas lights together.
  6. Do not leave candles or lights on when you are leaving your property.
  7. Do not plug space heaters into extension cords. Only directly into outlets.
  8. Do not succumb to unattended cooking. Stay in the kitchen and keep an eye on cooking ware and cooking surfaces.

With all things considered, keep this list in mind as you prepare for holiday festivities. Our goal is to help keep homes merry and bright!
