Below are a few tips from the Forsyth County fire department on holiday fire prevention safety:
- When selecting the perfect spot for your tree, keep it away from heat sources, which can dry out the tree.
- Before stringing your lights, inspect them for frayed wires, gaps in insulation, bare spots, excessive kinking or wear and broken or cracked sockets.
- Don’t overload your electrical outlets, and always use an extension cord and power strip.
- While it may be convenient to fuel your cozy fireplace with discarded wrapping paper, this can lead to dangerous sparks and large fires.
- Never place lit candles on or near your tree.
- Buy toys that are age, skill, ability and interest level appropriate.
- Place portable electric heaters at least three feet away from all combustible materials including upholstered furniture and drapes.
