Christmas Tree Safety Tips
- Once you get your Christmas Tree home, make a fresh cut across the tree’s base and immediately place in water. Keep the tree’s water container full at all times, checking the water level daily.
Be extra careful with electricity, all open flames and other heat sources during the holidays.
Check all Christmas Tree lights, other electric decorations and electrical appliances for wear (frayed cords, for example). Do not use lights, decorations or appliances with worn electrical cords. Use only UL approved electrical decorations and extension cords.
Place the Christmas Tree well away from heat registers, space heaters, fire places, wood stoves, televisions, computer monitors and other heat sources.
Place the Christmas Tree clear of doors to keep the emergency escape route clear of trees, packages and furniture.
Unplug tree lights and other decorations when out of the room or sleeping.
