3 Important Holiday Safety Tips

Christmas is just around the corner and that means it’s time to break out the decorations. This year when decorating your home for the holidays keep these important safety tips in mind.

Holiday Decorating Safety Tips

  • Use the buddy system when hanging outdoor Christmas lights. Having another person help while you string your lights outside is a great idea. If you can’t find someone to help, try hanging a bucket that is filled with all of your tools and hang it from a hook that you can easily reach from a ladder or step stool.
  • Go through old lights and make sure they are in good working order. If a strand looks like it may be damaged or has many broken bulbs it’s a good idea to toss them out and get a new set of lights.
  • Make a plan for where you’re going to set up your tree. Organization is key when it comes to Christmas tree safety. Be sure you have all of your decorations planned out and all lights are in working order before you begin.
