Christmas Light Safety to keep your holidays merry and bright without any fires
It’s all fun and games until something catches on fire… and as a firefighter family, the irony would be a little too much! So as you’re getting ready to put up your Christmas lights, let’s talk fire safety.
If you choose to put up a live tree, follow the NFPA’s tips for preventing Christmas tree fires… which also means using the right kind of Christmas lights!
Make sure you’re using indoor lights that are UL labeled, which means they’ve been tested for safety.
Of course, make sure you turn off all lights when you leave the house and before you go to bed!
Consider buying LED lights, which don’t get hot to the touch. Plus, they last longer!
Refer to the NFPA’s website for more information on how to keep your holiday merry and bright without any fires!
