It’s hard to believe that the 2012 holiday season is upon us.
Setting up a tree and decorating it to the hilt is an American tradition that
delights both young and old. However, trees that are improperly outfitted or
cared for can be a tragic accident waiting to happen.
The Federal Emergency Management Administration’s (FEMA) website features
a fire safety resource sponsored by the National Fire Protection Association
(NFPA) and the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA). It offers tips and precautions
for safeguarding your holiday home decorations.
According to NFPA, each year an estimated 240 home fires involve
Christmas trees and another 150 home fires involve holiday lights and other
decorative lighting. Together, these fires result in 21 deaths and $25.2
million in direct property damage.
Following some simple fire safety tips can keep electric lights,
candles, and the holiday tree from creating a tragedy. First and foremost, be
sure all exits from your home are accessible and not blocked by decorations or
trees. Christmas trees are responsible for hundreds of fires annually. Usually
the causes are short-circuiting of electrical lights or open flames from
candles, lighters, or matches. Well-watered trees are not a problem. A dry and
neglected tree can be.
Below are some tips that FEMA’s Holiday and Christmas Tree Fire Safety recommends:
Our Department of Public Safety programs invites you and
students of our fire science programs to learn
more about holiday decorating safety and other fire safety topics. Visit the
FEMA website at www.fema.gov.
