I just read some great safety information on keeping our home and ourselves safe this Holiday season. Most of it had to do with our electrical cords and electric devices, so I thought it would fit well in this category.
Some of the tips were:
1. Choosing a tree that was well hydrated and keeping it hydrated, as not to cause a fire hazard when it is dried out.
2. Replace bulbs on strands of lights with the appropriate bulb, not one with a higher wattage, as it could cause a fire.
3. Water your live tree daily.
These were just a few out of many that I found on various fire prevention websites.
