Have a safe holiday season

Celebrate the Holidays Safely

Candle Safety Graphic
Cooking, candles, decorations, electrical cords, and heating devices, are all things you can expect at a winter holiday party, but, they’re also fire hazards. Keep your holiday parties safe with these U.S. Fire Administration (USFA) tips:
  • Test your smoke alarms and tell your guests about your home fire escape plan.
  • Keep children and pets away from lit candles.
  • Keep matches and lighters up high in a locked cabinet.
  • Stay in the kitchen when cooking at high temperatures; like frying, grilling or broiling.
  • Ask people who smoke to smoke outside. Remind smokers to keep their smoking materials with them, so young children don’t touch them.
  • Provide large, deep ashtrays for smokers. Thoroughly wet cigarette butts with water before discarding.
