Christmas Tree Safety

As you deck the halls this holiday season, be fire smart. A small fire that spreads to a Christmas tree can grow large very quickly.



·         Choose a tree with fresh, green needles that do not fall off when touching.


·         Before placing the tree in the stand, cut 2” from the base of the trunk.

·         Make sure the tree is at least three feet away from any heat source, like fireplaces, radiators, candles, heat vents or lights.

·         Make sure the tree is not blocking an exit.

·         Add water to the tree stand. Be sure to add water daily.

            ·         Use lights that have the label of a recognized testing laboratory. Some lights are only for indoor or outdoor use.

Get Ahead of the Winter Freeze


It’s not too early to begin preparing for the heating season.

Check these 10 tips off your list and get ahead of the winter freeze.


ð Our furnace has been inspected and serviced by a qualified professional during the last 12 months. (A furnace should be serviced at least once a year.)

ð Our chimneys and vents have been cleaned and inspected by a qualified professional. I have checked for creosote build-up. (Not cleaning your chimney is the leading cause of chimney fires from built up creosote. This service needs to be done at least once a year.)

ð Our wood for our fireplace or wood stove is dry, seasoned wood.

ð Our fireplace screen is metal or heat-tempered glass, in good condition and secure in its position in front of the fireplace.

ð We have a covered metal container ready to use to dispose cooled ashes. (The ash container should be kept at least 10 feet from the home and any nearby buildings.)

ð Our children know to stay at least 3 feet away from the fireplace, wood/pellet stove, oil stove or other space heaters.
