Holiday Fire Safety Tips

The combination of cold weather and flammable christmas decorations make the holiday season especially dangerous for fires. 

This time of year there's lights, electric blankets, candles, ovens, all sorts of things going on in your home. 

But with all that, is much needed safety precautions, since fires are more common during the colder months. 

Extension cords are very common for people to plug in lights and holiday decor. 

But using appropriate ones will save your winterwonderland from going up in smoke. 

Spending the extra dollars on a heavy duty cord can pay off in the end. 

And while you don't want your cords to heat up, people are trying to keep their homes toasty warm as temperatures drop. 

Electric blankets, space heaters, fire places and ovens are how people stay extra warm.
