Lights are a part of many end of year holiday celebrations, but they need to be done safely. One important way to keep people safe, is to keep from overloading outlets. Using a power strip can prevent this. Another thing you can do to be safe, is to keep flammable objects away from heat sources. For instance, a wreath should not be hanging near a fireplace because it can catch fire. And just in case the worst happens, it is also important to make sure that all of your smoke detectors are working.
- As we enter the holiday season, people will be setting up their festive light displays.
- Utilize power strips rather than octopus plugs, so you don’t create a fire hazard.
- To prevent a fire, choose battery-powered LED candles over traditional lit candles.
