Tips to avoid Christmas Tree Fires in Annapolis
Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday have all come and gone. It is now December and officially the holiday season. Many people are out shopping for Christmas trees and putting up holiday lights. This is a festive time of year, but also a time to remember some safety tips.
At SERVPRO of Annapolis/Severna Park we rely on the National Fire Protection Association for key fire safety tips. They recommend the following:
- Keep tree at least 3 feet from a heat source
- Be sure to add water to tree daily
- Make sure lights are not broken or have frayed cords
- Turn off holiday lights before bed or when leaving the home
Most importantly is to get rid of the Christmas tree once it is dried out. Removing the dead tree from the home and garage is the best prevention for accidental holiday fires.
