Seasonal Fire Safety Tips

January | February | March | April | May | June

July | August | September | October | November | December
DECEMBER

The holidays are a time for families and friends to celebrate traditions and the winter season. The following information is provided in hope that your holidays will be safe and happy.

The holiday season often brings family and friends together to celebrate the season. Provide guests with large ashtrays and empty them when the ashes are cool. Remind overnight guests that smoking when drowsy or in bed is not allowed in your home.

Candles can help bring a festive atmosphere to our celebrations but they can also cause great damage if not used safely. Always put candles in candlesticks before you light them. Don't use lit candles near flammable decorations and curtains. Never leave candles unattended or within the reach of young children.

  Fresh trees are an important decoration for many holiday celebrations. After your family's celebrations, remove the tree and dispose of it properly. Contact your garbage disposal service to learn the details of their holiday tree removal program.
