This time of year there is always too much to do...be sure to pay close attention when you are preparing your meals.
Remember to be aware of drinking and driving, both on your part and the others you share the road with.
Use only CSA approved tree lights. Check for frayed wires or broken sockets. Do not overload outlets. Never connect more strings then the manufacturer recommends.
When using natural decorations, such as holly berries and mistletoe, be sure to keep out of reach of small children and pets.
Be sure that your chimney is clean and the flu is open. Make sure hot ahes are placed in a metal container and placed outside until cold.
Never burn wrapping paper or evergreen boughs. Flash fires could result from the intense burning and jumping sparks.
Many old decorations, like tinsel and icicles contain lead. They should be discarded.
Always be sure that your smoke alarms have been tested and have good batteries. This time of year is known for fire outbreaks.
Be sure that breakable ornaments are placed high near the top of the tree, away from pets and children.
Remember that outside lights should have all their bulbs installed and not be located near snow or puddles.
Be sure that your candles are placed in sturdy containers and that they are a safe distance from combustibles. Always be sure they are extinguished when you leave the room.
Always be sure to water your tree to prevent a fire hazard. A well watered tree will shed no needles.
