Fire Safety Through the Holiday Season

Now that December is almost upon us, I drive through neighbourhoods and notice tons of beautiful trees and Christmas decorations.  Every year you will hear of fires and the tragic circumstances surrounding a family losing their home and everything they have.  

Here are some safety tips for you this Christmas:

- Make sure that your tree is fresh and has water at all times

- Test your smoke alarms and make sure your batteries are new.  This should be done at least once a year and Christmas is an easy time to remember!

- Always make sure that your tree does not block an exit out of your home.

- Keep your tree away from any heat sources 

- Never place open flames such as candles near your tree

- Check all your lights and decorations for frayed wires or damaged cords.

Be safe this holiday season and have a very Merry Christmas!
