HOLIDAY FIRE SAFETY

As families and friends come together to celebrate the holidays, it is important that they consider fire safety. The holiday season brings decorations, celebrations, and an increase in indoor cooking, all of which increase the risk of residential fires.

Never leave a lighted Christmas tree or other decorative lighting display unattended. Inspect lights for exposed or frayed wires, loose connections, and broken sockets. Do not overload extension cords or outlets and do not place an electrical cord under a rug.


Natural cut Christmas trees always involve some risk of fire. To minimize the risk, get a fresh tree and keep it watered at all times. Do not put the tree within three feet of a fireplace, space heater, radiator or heat vent.



Each year, residential fires generally increase across the U.S. in December. According to NFPA, U.S. fire departments respond to an average of 240 residential fires a year caused by Christmas
 trees alone.


The U.S.F.A. recommends these precautions around the holidays:
  • Don’t use real candles as part of decorations and remember to always exercise basic safety when using candles throughout the home.
  • Never leave a lighted Christmas tree or other decorative lighting display unattended. Inspect lights for exposed or frayed wires, loose connections, and broken sockets. Do not overload extension cords or outlets and do not place an electrical cord under a rug.
  • Natural cut Christmas trees always involve some risk of fire. To minimize the risk, get a fresh tree and keep it watered at all times. Do not put the tree within three feet of a fireplace, space heater, radiator or heat vent.
  • Decorate with children in mind. Do not put ornaments that have small parts or metal hooks, or look like food or candy, on the lower branches where small children can reach them. Trim protruding branches at or below a child’s eye level and keep lights out of reach.
  • Do not burn Christmas tree branches, treated wood, or wrapping paper in a home fireplace.
  • Declare the kitchen off limits to children and those adults not assisting with food preparation. A crowded kitchen can increase the danger of spills and burns.
  • Be prepared to deal with cooking fires. Remember to never put water on a grease fire.

Finally, the best way to protect loved ones in the event of a fire is to discuss fire safety and home escape plans. It is important to review fire escape plans with any overnight guests during the holiday season in case of an emergency.

Have a Safe and Happy Holiday
