tree on fire, chair on fire Don't let a dry tree or damaged Christmas lights put your family and home at risk.

We know it’s not even Halloween or Thanksgiving but it’s never too early to start thinking how to safely decorate your home or business for Christmas. 

If you’re putting up a live Christmas tree, here’s a quick check list to review:

  • Get a fresh tree whose needles are green and don't easily fall off
  • Cut 1-2 inches from base of trunk before placing the tree in the stand
  • Place the tree at least 3 feet away from heat sources
  • Add water daily to prevent drying
  • Do not connect together more than three strands of mini-string sets
  • Check holiday lights for frayed wires or excessive water
  • Always turn lights off on a tree before going to bed or leaving your home
  • Get rid of a tree when its needles start dropping
  • Check that your smoke alarm is working properly
