Holiday Decorating Safety

While Christmas decorating can be a fun and exciting activity, it's important to prioritize safety above all else. Every year, thousands of people are injured in accidents related to holiday decorating, including falls, electric shocks, and fires. Here are some tips to keep in mind to ensure a safe and happy holiday season: 

1. Use sturdy ladders and make sure they are on a flat and stable surface before climbing on them. Always have someone hold the base of the ladder for extra stability. 

2. Inspect all of your lights and decorations before use, especially if they have been stored away for a year. Check for frayed wires, broken bulbs, and other signs of damage. 

3. Follow the manufacturer's instructions when it comes to outdoor lights and extension cords. Use only outdoor-rated cords and avoid overloading outlets and circuits. 

4. Keep your decorations away from heat sources, such as fireplaces and candles, to reduce the risk of fire. 

5. When working with electricity, make sure your hands are dry and wear non-conductive gloves. Never touch electrical components with wet hands. 

6. If you're using a real Christmas tree, make sure it's well watered to reduce the risk of it drying out and becoming a fire hazard. 

By taking a few extra precautions and putting safety first, you can ensure a happy and accident-free holiday season. Don't let safety take a back seat to the fun of decorating!
