Make the holiday season a safe one

title

By Lisa Braxton

Many of us are busy these days decorating our homes for the holidays, choosing favorite recipes for lunches and dinners, and tidying up. As we prepare to make family and friends comfortable when they visit, let’s keep their safety in mind too.

It’s not only important to test smoke alarms every month, but to tell guests about your home fire escape plan. While you’re at it, you can practice your home fire drill with your overnight guests.

Make sure children stay away from the stove. The stove will be hot and kids should stay at least three feet away. Kids should also stay away from hot food and liquids.

More tips for this holiday season are available at Project Holiday, NFPA’s winter holiday safety page, which offers an abundance of safety information to ensure that the holiday season is a safe one.
