General Holiday Safety Tips


We want everyone to enjoy this holiday season safe and sound with family and friends. Please keep these general HOLIDAY SAFETY tips in mind:

  • Keep matches, lighters and candles out of the reach of children.
  • Make an emergency plan to use if a fire breaks out anywhere in the home. See that each family member knows what to do. PRACTICE THE PLAN!
  • Check smoke detectors and carbon monoxide alarms in your home. Make sure they are working properly.
  • Avoid wearing loose flowing clothes (particularly long, open sleeves) near open flames, such as those of a fireplace, stove or candlelit table.
  • Never burn candles near evergreens. Burning evergreens in the fireplace can also be hazardous.
  • Plan for safety. Look for and eliminate potential danger spots near candles, fireplaces, trees and/or electrical connections.
