On this Christmas Eve, we offer important tips to protect you and your family. Assignment reporter Katie Baker has reminders on how to keep your Christmas safe…
The holidays mean yummy food, parties, and lots of family and friends. Unfortunately, it’s also the time of year when there are a lot of home fires. Check the batteries in your smoke alarm. Also, remember to unplug all holiday lights before leaving home or going to bed, and use candles carefully. Keep portable space heaters at least three feet from anything that can burn. Holiday lights look pretty, but they can also cause fires. If your lights have cracked or frayed cords, throw them away. If you buy an artificial tree, be sure it is labeled “flame retardant.” If you have a real Christmas tree, water it several times a day and don’t place the tree where it may block exits. Also keep your tree at least three feet from furnaces, radiators and fireplaces. Remember, a fire on any day seems bad, but a fire on Christmas, it just seems to be the worst.
