4 Tips for a Fire-Free Christmas
While we take a holiday break and spend quality time with family and friends, the Civil Security Department would like to give 4 tips to prevent fire for a quality and memorable Christmas.
1- Smoke outside
Make sure cigarette butts are extinguished and discarded properly. Even better, smoke outside and encourage others to do the same.
2- Water natural trees
If you prefer a natural Christmas tree for inside your home, choose a fresh one, stand the base in a pot and keep the pot filled with water. Set up your tree away from potential ignition sources, such as heaters and candles.
3- Check all decorative lighting
Before installing lights on a tree or around your home, inspect them. Discard any products with frayed wiring or other damage.
4- Make sure your fire safety equipment is ready for any emergency
Verify your smoke detector before the holidays to make sure it is activated and that the batteries are still working. Have your extinguisher ready and available to use anytime.
For any fire-related emergency, call immediately 819-xxx-9000.
Keep your family fire safe!
