'Tis the Season for Fire Safety

12/20/2023 (Permalink)

The holiday season is upon us, and while the festivities bring joy, it's crucial to prioritize safety, especially concerning fire hazards. At SERVPRO of Southern Scioto & Lawrence Counties, we're here to share some essential tips for a fire-safe Christmas.

1. Mind the Decorations: ???? Place flammable items away from heat sources, opting for flame-resistant decorations. Ensure curtains and tinsel are at a safe distance from fireplaces and heaters.

2. Lights with Care: ???? Inspect Christmas lights for damage before use. Choose LED lights to reduce heat emission, and always turn them off when not in use.

3. Fireplace Safety: ???? Maintain a clean fireplace, using a sturdy screen to contain embers. Never leave a fire unattended, and keep flammable items away from its vicinity.

4. Cooking Caution: ????? Avoid leaving cooking unattended, use timers, and keep flammable items away from the stove. Keep a fire extinguisher in the kitchen and know how to use it.

5. Christmas Tree TLC: ???? If you have a live tree, keep it fresh and hydrated to reduce the risk of fire. Position it away from heat sources and turn off lights when not in use.

6. Have an Evacuation Plan: ???? Ensure your family knows the evacuation plan, including the location of fire exits. Practice the plan regularly to familiarize everyone with the procedures.

7. Stay Smoke Alarm Savvy: ???? Regularly test smoke alarms and replace batteries annually. Install alarms in every bedroom and on each floor for early fire detection.

This holiday season let's deck the halls with safety in mind. From all of us at SERVPRO of Southern Scioto & Lawrence Counties, we wish you a safe, joyful, and fire-free Christmas! ???? #SERVPROSafety #HappyHolidays
