Christmas Tree Safety: Preventing Fires & Tips for Staying Safe
Have a Safe & Happy Holiday!
The holidays sure can bring a lot of joy and cheer to locals as festive decorations shine bright on residents’ homes - both inside and out. With Christmas less than a week away, families across Long Island have been visiting their local Christmas Tree farms, and purchasing pines to deck out for the holiday. As we celebrate the holiday and enjoy our trees, it is important to remember some safety tips that will keep you and your loved ones safe this season. There are certain risks that come with the fun of holiday decorating that could potentially drain out all that joy and cheer, the biggest one of course being the potential of a house fire.
