Christmas Tree Safety

12/1/2017 (Permalink)

For the holidays, nothing is more complete than having a live Christmas tree in your living room. However, having a live Christmas tree can be a real risk towards your family, friends, and especially your home. This is because Christmas trees, when they become dry, can become a fire hazard and can cause extensive damage. Although they aren’t common, Christmas tree fires alone cause million dollars of property damage every year. Here are some precautionary tips to prevent disaster:

  • Choose fresh trees over cheap and dry
  • Don’t keep a dry tree around and dispose of it properly
  • Keep the tree base filled with water so tree does not dry out quickly
  • Keep tree away from heat sources, such as fireplaces, candles, and even a TV
  • Don’t use damaged or frayed cords
  • Turn lights off Christmas lights at night or when leaving house unattended
  • Keeping a fire extinguisher nearby just in case
  • Test smoke and carbon monoxide alarms (monthly) to make sure they work

Hope everyone has a safe and wonderful holiday!
