Did you know, nearly half of decoration fires happen because decorations are placed too close to a heat source?
As you start decorating, Fire District 7 wanted to remind you of some holiday safety tips:
- Remember to choose decorations that are flame resistant and to keep all decorations away from any heat source.
- Use clips, not nails to hang lights so the cords do not get damaged.
- Most of all, before you head off to bed or out the door, blow out all candles and turn off all light strings.
Fire District 7 wishes you and your family a happy and safe holiday season!
