Keep Your House Free from Fires this Holiday Season

Keep Your House Free from Fires this Holiday Season

December brings about some of the year’s most memorable holidays. With Christmas, Kwanza, Hanukah, and New Year’s nearly here, many families are decorating their houses with lights, candles, Christmas trees, and other types of decorations. While these items can make the home look festive and cozy, they can pose serious risks if they are not cared for properly.

To help your family prevent a house fire during the holidays, consider the tips we have provided below:

  1. If you plan to have a real Christmas tree in your house, make sure it is watered at all times. A Christmas tree that is not watered properly can become dry and brittle, making the plant much more flammable.
  2. Do not place a Christmas tree within 3ft of a heat vent, space heater, or fireplace. This can cause the tree to dry-out, making it easy to catch fire if exposed to heat or flames
  3. Ensure all decorative lights are safe to use. Check to make sure no wires are exposed. If you can see colored wires, refrain from using the entire string of lights.
  4. If you are using candles for decorative purposes, use fake candles powered by batteries. This can prevent fires caused by the flames of real candles.
  5. Never leave any decorative electronics unattended when in use.
  6. If you choose to use real candles, make sure they are placed in areas where they cannot be knocked over by people or pets walking by. In addition, it may be wise to put candles in candle holding containers.
  7. Do not overload power strips.
