Christmas Tree Hazards
Every year more and more families are moving away from the fake pre-lit Christmas trees and gravitating back towards the real thing.
Real trees are beautiful, but as with most beautiful things in life, they can be dangerous. Take a look at these guid lines to keep your family and home safe.
-When shopping for that perfect tree, look for vibrant green needles that do not break easily. If a tree is already easily shedding its needles than it is likely not a freshly cut tree and more susceptible to catch fire.
- Make sure that there is always water in the tree base to prevent the tree from drying out and make sure the tree is placed far away from any heat sources like candles or fire places.
-We all get tired at the end of the day and forget to do things but be sure to make unplugging your Christmas tree a part of your nightly routine.
-Lastly, pay attention to what Christmas lights you purchase. Any lights you use outdoors need to be labeled suitable for outdoor use.
