We are all getting ready for the holidays and there are hazards that you should prepare to insure a “happy” holiday.
Cozy Fire – watch open fireplaces around children – make sure you have a screen. Don’t place your tree near the fireplace, especially when the tree starts shedding their needles.
Kid proof your tree – avoid artificial candy and popcorn, position the tree in a low-traffic area where kids and pets pose a tip-over risk.
Candles – never light candles near your holiday tree, never leave them unattended.
Lights – make sure your lights do not have any frayed wires, broken bulbs/sockets, and look for any loose connections.
Poinsettias – while an important part of Christmas they do pose a risk for animals. Be careful where you place poinsettias, so your fur babies are not tempted.
Follow these tips and enjoy a “safe” holiday season.
