Stay Fire-Free this Holiday
This Fall season in Florida has brought us cooler temperatures, amazing weather, and an abundance of outdoor activities. You can help make sure your seasonal plans don’t go up in smoke by taking a few precautions. Keep your family safe and fire-free by planning ahead this season.
Decorations like flowers, wreaths, and Christmas trees are likely to dry out and are very flammable. Keep these and other decorations away from open flames and heat sources, including light bulbs and heaters.
While celebrating these Holidays, be sure to keep all decorations clear from any emergency exits, whether that’s a window or a back door. Nothing should be blocking an escape route.
Though Florida isn’t known to have many bon fires, they still occur on those rare cold nights either on the beach or in a backyard. Teach your children to stay away from open flames. Be sure they know how to stop, drop, and roll if their clothing catches fire.
If you’re like me as soon as December arrives, my seasonal and holiday candles are out and lit! But even adults should use caution using real candles. Ensure that nothing flammable is close to the candle before lighting, such as paper, linens, and decorations.
