Winter (and Christmas) are just around the corner! Here are a few important things to keep in mind to keep your home, vehicle, and family protected this month.
Have you decorated your home for the holidays? While Christmas lights are pretty safe, it’s overloaded extension cords and outlets that pose a fire threat. Be smart when plugging in your lights.
Space heaters are another fire danger. Only choose heaters that have an automatic off switch if they tip over and keep them far away from flammable materials or fabrics.
If you choose a real Christmas tree, make sure to keep it watered and turn off the lights when you’re not home.
Before Santa arrives (or you light those fireplaces), make sure your chimney is clean!
If the temperatures dip too low, remember to let your faucet drip slowly. This will relieve pressure in the pipes and prevent them from freezing and bursting.
Make sure your tires are well aired and in great shape, especially if you will be driving on icy roads.
