The best of our holidays are arriving. But if safety does not remain in our minds, they could become the worst of times. On average, 210 house fires per year start in Christmas trees. These fires cause on average 7 deaths, 19 injuries, and $17.5 million in property damage each year. That’s 1 death per every 31 home fires.
Now would be a good time to test all of the smoke alarms in your home. You can also now purchase heat sensors that can be placed near your tree that will sound off long before there is enough smoke to activate your smoke alarms.
Don’t let common sense take a holiday this season.
