12/18/2017 (Permalink)

Its Finally here! With less than a week until Santa makes his arrival, it is crunch time. It is easy to over look minor details that could potentially cause HUGE problems. Here are a few tips to keep your family safe this holiday season:

  • Check all strings of lights to ensure there is no damage and they are working properly
  • Be sure to water your Christmas tree often; dry trees will catch fire
  • Be sure to put all candles in a hurricane glass and out of the reach of children and pets
  • Never leave your fireplace unattended and be sure to keep the screen/door closed to prevent hot coals from popping out
  • Be aware of holiday plants that are poisonous to pets and people; keep them out of reach 
  • Make sure you wash your hands after handling strings of Christmas lights as they contain high amounts of lead
  • Be sure to place carbon monoxide alarms around your home 
  • Keep hard candy and nuts out of the reach of small children as it is a choking hazard

With the busyness of the holiday season, it is easy to over look small details or cut corners to get more done. Be sure to be cautious of potential holidays disasters to keep your loved ones out of harms way this year!
