Weekly Tip - Christmas Tree Safety

Please remember to regularly water your fresh Christmas trees.  This video is a good demonstration of how quickly a dried tree can catch on fire and burn.  Other recommendations include: keeping all heat sources away from your tree, choose a fresh tree with green needles that don't fall off when pulled, look for labels indicating the tree has been treated with fire retardant, and use lights designed for indoor use that are in good working order.

Visit the National Fire Protection Association  or the Red Cross Holiday Home Fire Safety site for tips and additional information on fire safety during the holidays.
