Safety Tips for the Holidays


* Lock all doors and windows when leaving the house, even if only for a short time.  For an extended leave, have a neighbor or family member get your mail.  Install an automatic timer for indoor and outdoor lights.

* Mount your tree on a sturdy base.  Keep it at least 3 feet away from furnaces, radiators and fireplaces.  For an artificial tree, make sure it is fire-retardant.

* Replace any strings of lights that are frayed or broken.  Be sure the lights are certified for indoor or outdoor uses.

* Some plants such as mistletoe or holly berries can pose risks to small children and pets.  Keep them well out of reach.

* Never leave candles unattended or near flammable materials such as books, curtains and tablecloths.

  1. When someone writes an paragraph he/she keeps the thought of
    a user in his/her mind that how a user can be aware of it.
    So that’s why this piece of writing is great. Thanks!
