During the holidays you spend time making memories with your friends and family. Decorating trees, and homes, cooking large feast and baked goods, and sitting by the fireplace on a cold night. Making memories that will last a last time.

Safety tips:

  • Keep your Christmas tree 3 to 10 feet away from a fireplace.
  • Don't throw trash, cards or box in the fireplace.
  • Don't hang garland, stocking or cards too close to the fireplace.
  • Check lights for damaged, or frayed cords and missing bulbs.
  • Don't decorate tree with candles.
  • Make sure candles are on a flat surface.
  • Watering your Christmas tree daily. A dry try burns faster than one that is water daily.
  • Install, test, change batteries to make sure they are working.
  • Do not leave any cooking unattended. Set timers if you need to check on food.
