Fire Safety During the Holidays

The holiday season is upon us, which means Operation: Deck the Halls is a go! As you’re hanging and placing your decorations carefully and thoughtfully throughout your home, this inevitably includes twinkling lights! However, there are a few important things to keep in mind when decorating your home.

Lights & Other Decorations

Live Christmas Trees

Nothing smells more like the holiday season than a live Christmas tree! While shopping for a live tree, make sure it has not been dried out; a well watered tree has branches that bend and not break. Cut a few inches from the bottom of the tree so it is able to soak up water, extending its life. Be sure to water your tree daily! A live tree generally needs at least one gallon per day.
Place live or artificial trees a minimum of 3 feet away from heat sources, including candles, fireplaces, etc.

Fire safety during the holidays is extremely important! Our team with Todd Claim Service wishes you and your family a safe and happy holiday season.
