Holiday Safety Tips


For the travelers:

  • Be sure to do a basic safety check on your vehicle.

  • If you're driving in colder temperatures, especially during winter, be sure to winterize your car.

  • Get a good night's sleep the night before.

  • Stop if you get tired.

  • Put your phone out of reach while driving.

  • Let someone know what route you're taking, and check-in during rest stops.

For the decorators:

  • Examine all cords and lights prior to plugging them in.

  • If you're using a ladder of any kind, even a small step ladder, have another person there to spot you to avoid falling.

  • Do not climb on top of roofs if there is frost or dew, as this increases the risk of a slip and fall.

  • Avoid placing breakable ornaments, or ones with small pieces in areas where children can reach them.

  • Never nail, tack or stress wiring when hanging lights and keep plugs off the ground away from puddles and snow.

  • Always turn off all lights and decorations at night or when you leave the home.

Watch for Fire Starters

  • Use flameless candles or diffusers instead of flame candles to reduce the risk of fire.

  • Never place fire lit candles in areas where children can reach them, or in areas they could tip and fall easily.

  • Always have a screen around a fire place.

  • Never leave any flame unattended under any circumstance.

  • Clean and clear chimney prior to use.
