As such, we have arrived at many job sites related to home and building fires over the years.  One thing is clear – emergencies don’t take the holidays off.  They are never convenient.  And an ounce of prevention can go a long way.

Holidays Create An Increased Risk For Home And Building Fires

For firefighters and emergency personnel, the holiday season is often one of the busiest times of the year. Topped only by Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day are the leading days of the year for home and building fires.  According to our friends at the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the biggest contributors to fires during the winter months include the following:

  • Heating sources
  • Holiday decorations
  • Candles
  • Cooking

Fire Safety Tips To Protect You And Your Loved Ones

  • Keep Christmas trees, and other holiday decorations, 3ft away from heat sources like fireplaces and space heaters.
  • Maintain a water source for live Christmas trees to prevent drying out. Dry trees are a major fire hazard according to Bixby, Oklahoma firefighters
  • Pay attention to the manufacturer’s instructions for light strands. Make sure you’re using lights outdoors that are designated for outdoor use.  Avoid overloading circuits by plugging in too many light strands.
  • Never walk away from the stove while cooking. 
  • Keep candles at least 12 inches away from anything that burns.  Candle fires make up an average of 7,400 home fires each year.
  • Have your fireplace inspected and cleaned by a professional before use.
