Help reduce your Home’s Fire Risk this Holiday Season


 
Wow, the holiday season is here. It seems to come quicker every year. This week as you celebrate Thanksgiving and kick off the holiday season, here are a few tips to keep you safe. With holiday traditions often including higher demands for electricity, your home’s electrical system will be getting quite the work out. Here are a few tips to keep you safe:
 
Plan accordingly. Before decorating, determine how many outlets are available and where they are located. Plan your displays accordingly.
 
Don’t overload. Avoid overloading electrical outlets with too many decorations or electrical devices. They can overheat and cause a fire.
 
LED Lights. Consider purchasing LED lights, which use less energy and run cooler than traditional incandescent lights
 
Just a few small changes can go a long way in keeping you and your family safe all without compromising your holiday. Enjoy your time with family and friends. Give thanks for the many blessings that surround you. And, if you need help with anything electrical, give us a call. We are happy to help.
