The holiday season is finally upon us and with it comes the need to review a few safety tips for your family’s safety during this wonderful time of the year. It can also be a hectic time with shopping and dealing with crowds often leaving us in an exhausted and often times forgetful concerning safety issues. Keeping these few tips in mind will assure you have a joyous holiday loaded with holiday cheer. These are just a few of the biggest safety issues to consider.
Make sure you test all indoor and outdoor lights before hanging, any burned out bulbs or frayed electrical cords can be a safety hazard. You must use outdoor light outside and indoor light inside, never confusing them, if you use indoor outside you run the risk of the freezing shorting them out.
If you have young children at home, only use child friendly ornaments and save any fragile heirloom ornaments until they are older. Any ornaments that are sharp or even candy should also be avoiding.
Choose your tree wisely, if you want a real tree you should make sure it is not dried out, you can do this by shaking the tree at the lot, if a lot of needles fall of it is dry. If you choose an artificial tree make sure it is flame retardant and certified.
If you are traveling away for the holidays, it is essential especially at this time of year to make sure your home security system from www.allhomesecurity.com/ is working and set before leaving for the holidays.
Have a Safe and Happy Holiday Season.
