Holiday safety is an issue that burns brightest in the month of December, the time when families gather, parties are scheduled and travel spikes. Statistics show that the incidents of home fires and electrical accidents also typically increase during this season. A proactive approach to safety will help you give the gift of protection to your family and friends this holiday season!

Some useful tips:

  • Never leave burning candles unattended and keep them out of reach of children
  • Extinguish all candles before going to sleep
  • Don’t burn candles near trees, curtains or any other flammable items
  • And don’t burn trees, wreaths or wrapping paper in the fireplace.

Have a happy, healthy and safe holiday season!
