Safety Tips

Safeguard Your Home for the Holidays

he holidays are a time to turn your attention to family, friends and the celebrations of the season. Taking a few simple safety precautions will help things go just the way you planned.

  • Carefully inspect decorations before use. Cracked sockets, frayed or bare wires and loose connections may pose fire or shock hazards.
  • Position your tree at least three feet away from fireplaces, radiators and other heat sources. Make sure your tree isn’t blocking a doorway or exit route.
  • Do not connect more than three miniature light strings together. Light strings with larger, screw-in bulbs should have no more than 50 bulbs connected.
  • Turn off electrical lights, decorations and space heaters before leaving home or going to bed.
  • Make sure all electrical products bear the UL Mark .
