Tips for safe holiday decorating

Following simple rules when decorating for the holidays  is important =. Here are a few tips to keep in mind:

  • Do not use lighted candles on trees or near shrubbery.
  • Check your string lights for any frayed ends or blown bulbs prior to putting them on the tree.
  • If using a real tree, make sure to keep it watered.
  • Use flame-resistant materials for your trimmings.
  • Make sure you only use the recommended amount of lights per extension cord (usually three sets).
  • Turn off all lighted decorations prior to going to bed.
  • Do not use electric lights or decorations on a metallic tree.
  • Do not place your live tree near any heat sources.
  • If using artificial snow, read the directions carefully.
  • Do not burn wrapping paper in the fireplace.
  • Always have a safety and evacuation plan in place.
