Celebrating the holidays should be enjoyable and safe for the whole family. It is important to keep in mind that following certain safety tips, according to news sources, can make you and your family enjoy a safe holiday this season.
The important thing of course is to keep in mind that lighting can be sometimes dangerous and that there are certain precautionary steps you can take to ensure increased safety for you and your family. Chief among those is to test smoke detectors and replace their battery to ensure that they are functioning while also planning possible escape routes in case of a fire.
Also to keep in mind is to make sure that the Christmas tree remains moist, since drier trees lead to an increased chance of catching fire if the light bulbs used are too hot. Therefore, make sure to water your Christmas tree liberally.
Make sure to never overload electrical circuits and keep wires clipped to branches to avoid contact with children.
