Safety Christmas tips
December is the darkest time of the year. Thursday, December 21st, 2017, will mark the winter solstice, which means it will be the official beginning of the winter and the shortest day of 2017.
However, we all be brightened by the Christmas decorations since every home - most likely - will use a touch of lights and candles. You just need to be aware that your lights and candles need to be used very carefully if you want to preserve the joy of Christmas until the end.
The American Red Cross shared with us the following safety tips to prevent a fire from striking at your home or business this holiday season.
- Christmas trees, candles, and other decorations must be at three feet away from fireplaces, portable heaters, radiators, heat vents and other heat sources.
- Light strings and other decorations must be in good condition. Do not use worn electrical cords, and follow the manual’s instructions.
- Before leaving the house to visit family or before going to bed, you must unplug your tree and lights.
- Use battery candles on a tree, never lit candles.
- Do not leave lit candles unattended in a room.
SERVPRO of Jackson/Crockett County wishes you a safe and happy holiday season!
