Fire Prevention This Holiday Season
SERVPRO of Anniston, Gadsden and Marshall County has tips to help you prevent fires in your home or business this holiday season.
- Make sure to water your Christmas tree daily to prevent it from drying out.
-Turn off Christmas lights when you leave your home or go the bed for the night.
-Inspect Christmas lights and the wires before putting them up and replace any that have frayed or damaged areas.
-NEVER leave a lit candle unattended.
-When using candles, make sure they are on a firm flat surface away from curtains and other flammable materials. This prevents them from tipping over.
-Keep candle flames away from children and pets, they can burn themselves or accidentally knock the candle over.
-Make sure deep fried turkeys are properly thawed before frying.
-Have the fireplace flue cleaned yearly.
