The use of holiday decorations such as Christmas trees, garlands, electric lights and candles can increase the incidence of holiday fires. Following a few simple fire safety tips can help ensure that you and your loved ones have a fire-safe holiday season:
CHRISTMAS FIRE SAFETY
4TH OF JULY FIRE SAFETY
• The fireworks that mark special celebrations are dangerous explosive devices that should never be used by consumers. There is no safe way to use consumer fireworks.
• Leave fireworks to the professionals – enjoy professional displays put on by trained individuals.
• Sparklers are fireworks, too. They may seem harmless, but they can burn at more than 1000°F and stay hot long after they have burned out.
