Holiday Fire Safety Tips

Decorating for the holidays can be a lot of fun, but remember these fire safety tips Gresham!

  • Inspect your holiday lights every year before you put them up.
  • Throw away any light strands that have frayed or pinched wires.
  • A dry tree can catch on fire more easily. Water your Christmas tree every day 
  • Use battery-operated flameless candles, that look, smell and feel like real candles. 
  • Make sure any lit candles are in stable holders and place them where they cannot be knocked down easily
  • Don't overload electrical outlets
  • Stockings are hung with care at least 3 ft above a heat source
  • Turn off decorations when leaving the house, or going to bed
  • Never leave cooking food unattended
  • Have your chimney inspected to see if it needs cleaning
  • Put a screen on your fireplace to avoid any embers falling onto the carpet or floor
