Did you know?
-Nearly half of holiday decoration fires happen because
decorations are placed too close to a heat source.
-Inspect holiday lights each year before you put them up. Throw away light strands with frayed or pinched wires.
-Water your Christmas tree every day. A dry tree is dangerous because it can catch on fire easily.

-If you do use lit candles, make sure they are in stable holders and place them where they cannot be knocked down easily.
