As the holiday season approaches, it is important to keep safety in mind as we decorate. I have always enjoyed having wreaths outside my window. I have a pictures taken last year with fresh snow on it that I always enjoy. Decorating outside with fresh evergreens is very safe. Inside your home, however, is quite different. I am going to list out some points from the U.S. Fire Administration website about decorating safely this holiday season.
Everyone loves looking at a beautiful tree Christmas morning. But remember–KEEP THE TREE WATERED! These trees account for hundreds of fires annually, mostly from electrical shorts or open flames. Dry, neglected trees are a hazard. Carefully select a freshly cut tree when purchasing your tree–if many needles fall off the tree has been cut too long and can be a hazard. Buy from a reliable dealer. Maintain your holiday lights –do not use with any frayed wires. Do not leave lights on unattended.
The holidays are a wonderful time for families to enjoy-make sure you do it safely so a disaster doesn’t ruin your holidays and risk harm to your loved ones. For more safety tips, visit their website www.usfa.fema.gov
There are many civic groups and individuals that help our town look more beautiful by adopting an area or Island to maintain. Weymouth Rotary has adopted an Island this year as well. We are proud to join the ranks with all the others who contribute their time as well.
