HOLIDAY TREE & DECORATION SAFETY
Please review U.S. Fire Administration (FEMA) recommendations for fire prevention
1.   Water live trees daily and keep at least six (6) ft. from heat or fire sources
2.   Check holiday lights for broken/cracked sockets, frayed or bare wires.  Discard damaged sets.
3.   Turn off all lights on trees and other decorations when you go to bed or leave the house.
4.   Do not use candles on or near trees or near other holiday decorations.
5.   Check your Smoke Detector to ensure working.
