Stay Safe This Christmas!

Enjoy the holiday season but be cautious with your Christmas tree. Buy a freshly cut tree and keep the stand full of water at all times. Keep it away from all heat sources and make sure it doesn’t block a doorway. Check all decorative lights before placing them on the tree and discard any frayed or damaged lights and cords. Never place lighted candles on or near the Christmas tree. When large amounts of needles begin to fall off, it’s time to get rid of the tree.

These are just a few tips from your fire department and this station for a fire-safe holiday season.
