While removing holiday lights or decorations or doing work around your house or business, the Irving Fire Department wants everyone to be safe when CLIMBING LADDERS

 Please keep the following safety tips in mind when using a ladder:

  • Place ladder on level and firm ground
  • Set ladder locks
  • Don't climb too high (two rungs below top)
  • Face ladder as you climb up and down
  • Watch doors as you climb (make sure people know if you are climbing a ladder near a closed door)
  • Use a safe shoe while climbing
  • Don't reach out, instead move the ladder
  • If working outdoors, watch overhead for power lines
