Decorating for the holiday? Think of safety first.

As we get closer to the Holidays, I have some tips for your family to enjoy a safe and Happy Holiday Season.

Holiday tips to stay Safe


 ~ If you plan to place decorations on your roof, check to be sure where the overhead power lines are located.    Be sure to keep a minimum of TEN FEET between the power lines and anything you may be holding, such as a ladder, equipment, etc.  


 ~ While you are locating those power lines, be sure any strung lights are far from them, as anything touching a power line can become energized.


 ~ Most Holiday fires are started by candles.   Be sure all candles are blown out before leaving your home or going to bed.

 ~ Almost half of Holiday decoration fires happen because decorations are placed too close to a heat source.

~ Be sure to READ the guidelines for indoor and outdoor use of decorative lights, including the number of light sets you are able to connect to a single extension cord.


 ~ If you find lights from previous years that are cracked or have broken sockets, it is time to replace these.    If there is any frayed insulation and bare wires, these are a definite fire hazard.


 ~ Do not place these extension cords under rugs, as they could overheat or become worn and cause a fire.


 ~ Unplug any and all decorative lights when you leave home or when you go to bed.

 ~ Be sure your live trees get plenty of water, as they tend to dry out quickly, and become a fire hazard.


Make this Holiday season, one that you want to remember, not to forget!

It seems that most owners in my neighborhood are hiring professional companies to do the install properly. I never try to do what I am not capable of doing.
