Avoid Fire Hazards This Holiday Season

It is very important to recognize the potential fire hazards that come with holiday decorations. As this video demonstrates, a dry Christmas tree and an overloaded electrical outlet are just two of the many fire hazards that are present during the holiday season.

Never plug-in more than one high-wattage device into a single outlet, and always keep your tree moist. Buy a fresh tree if possible and keep the stand filled with water. Only use certified extension cords on a temporary basis, not as a permanent measure. Also, be sure to keep space heaters away from drapes and other flammable materials.
