Have you remembered to check your smoke and/or fire alarms for the winter season?  In Ontario you should have at least one on each floor.  Single level domiciles should have alarms near the kitchen and all sleeping areas (not bad advice no matter where you live).

Christmas Tree
Ensure that artificial trees are flame retardant.  If you are choosing a real tree, tap it on the ground to check for freshness, dropping needles indicate a dry and highly flammable tree.  Needles should be hard to pull from branches and should not break when bent between your fingers.


Before lighting a fire, ensure the flue is open and clean.  Remove any fire hazards around the fireplace (stockings, decorations etc).  Use seasoned firewood, ensure a screen is in front of the fireplace and never leave it unattended.


Choose decorations that are non-conductive, non-combustible, and fire retardant.

In Canada, use CSA approved lights.  In the US, use appropriately approved lighting. Use lights appropriately, indoor and outdoor lights used indoors and outdoors respectively.  Check lights strings for broken or cracked sockets and for frayed or bare wires.  Turn off lights when you are going to sleep and when you leave the home.  Do not overload circuits, never string more than three sets of lights per extension cord.  Where possible consider switching to more energy efficient LED lighting.

Never leave burning candles unattended and keep them away from children and pets.  Ensure that all candles are placed in sturdy and safe holders and are safely away from curtains and other combustible items. 


Never leave your cooking unattended.  Avoid wearing loose clothing while cooking.  Keep a fire extinguisher handy and have an operational smoke alarm in the vicinity.
