holidaysafetyWith the holiday season is upon us, it’s the time of year that we tend to rush and become overwhelmed with the season. During the hustle and bustle of this joyus time of year, safety tends to become an oversight.

Decorating my home with my children has become as annual tradition.  We decorate the entire house inside and out with strands of sparkling lights, hanging ornaments and other holiday decorations. With all of the beautiful decorations that adorn my home, there are many safety hazards that can come along with the holiday.  

There are a few things you can do in your own homes to reduce the likelihood of accident or a fire, such as:

  • When decorating the tree, always make sure that Christmas light wires are not frayed or worn.  If they look old or worn, throw them out.
  • When plugging in all the lights, make sure that sockets are not overloaded. 
  • Avoid climbing on chairs. Every year, the emergency room is full from many accidents that involve falling off charis or unstable objects.  If you can’t reach something, use a ladder or stepstool. 
  • If you use a ladder, always make sure that there is someone who can help support the bottom of the ladder.
  • For those with little kids in the house, make sure that all breakable decorations are out of reach and use battery operated candles.  They are safe for young children kids and you don’t have to worry about blowing them out! 
  • And no matter how wonderful the tree looks in that special place in the room, never block exits, heating vents or furniture with the tree!

Be sure to keep safety a priority this holiday season! Just following a few safety tips while decorating will ensure that everyone in your family will have a safe and happy holiday season together!
