Holiday safety

Christmas lights with the words don't let your holiday go up in smoke. Inspect for damaged cords.

Let’s have a safe and happy holiday season this year.

It’s easy to get distracted when cooking. Stay in the kitchen when you cook. If you must leave, turn off the stove.

Keep candles away from anything that can burn and extinguish all candles before leaving the room, heading out or going to bed.

Smoking is the leading cause of fatal fires during the holidays. All too often, alcohol is involved. Butt out cigarettes in deep, sturdy ashtrays and drink responsibly.

Finally, keep your home safe this holiday season by installing smoke and carbon monoxide alarms on every level. Test your alarms by pressing the test button every month.
Happy Holidays!
