Fire Safety Tips for the Holiday


Protect your home and belongings from fire damage this season. 

Holiday candles, dry Christmas trees, flammable wrapping paper, cooking up a feast – there are plenty of fire risks when it comes to the holiday season. The number of home fires increases during the holidays because not only are there more risks, but people often have their mind on other things. To help protect your home and belongings, take a look at these holiday safety tips. 



  • Light holiday candles with care. Extinguish them before leaving the room or going to sleep
  • Keep them out of reach of pets and children
  • Place them away from flammable materials such as the tree or holiday cards



  • Move flammable objects such as towels and utensils away from the stovetop and oven
  • Keep children out of the kitchen while you’re cooking
  • Avoid leaving the kitchen while the oven is on 
  • Supervise elderly adults or children if they are helping you in the kitchen
  • Avoid wearing loose-fitting clothing while cooking


Holiday Lights

  • Make sure your holiday lights have no frayed wires or cracked cords
  • Never use nails to string lights up
