CHRISTMAS TIPS

Your Safety and Security are Important to us during the Holiday Season!  Here are some quick safety tips.

Lights & Candles
Never use lighted candles near Christmas trees, bows, curtains/drapes, or with any near any potential flammable items.  Be sure to turn off the Christmas lights when you sleep or if you leave your home for an extended amount of time.  

 
Smoke & Carbon monoxide detectors
Yearly checkups on all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors is a must during the Holiday season.  Making things safe for your family can prevent unfortunate circumstances or tragedies.
 
Christmas Tree Safety
When setting up a tree at home, place it away from fireplaces, radiators and portable heaters; heated rooms dry live trees out rapidly.  Remember to water live trees to reduce the risk of a fire hazard.  Check all tree lights— even if you’ve just purchased them—before hanging on your tree. Make sure all the bulbs work and that there are no frayed wires, broken sockets or loose connections. 
 
Decorations
Decorations can be highly flammable.  Be sure to keep them away from overloaded electrical outlets, candles, and fireplaces.
