Holiday Safety Tips

Keep Your Family Safe in Your Home this Holiday!

Don't overload outlets. Check the light strings to ensure they are not getting too warm and always unplug lights when you're not home.

Choose non-flammable & flame retardant decorations. Certain decorations may be gorgeous, but are made of highly flammable materials. Make sure to keep paper, lace or fabric decorations away from heat sources.

Inspect decorative lights for flaws. Frayed wires are a recipe for disaster!

Check smoke and carbon monoxide detection device batteries and replace them regularly. Test them to make sure they are in working order.
Keep a fire extinguisher in the kitchen. The extinguisher should be rated for both grease and electrical fires. To use it, remember the acronym P.A.S.S.: Pull the pin; Aim the nozzle at the base of the fire; Squeeze the nozzle to spray; Sweep back and forth at the base of the fire as you spray.

Woof! Keep all food out of your pet's reach. Remember, dogs cannot eat chocolate and any animal that consumes alcohol may experience nausea or an upset stomach.

When traveling this holiday season, don't forget to pack emergency gear! Your winter kit can include: blankets; warm clothing; sand, cat litter or traction mats, a small shovel, flashlight with fresh batteries, warning flares, drinking water, and anything else you might need.
