Fire Safety for the Holiday Season

December 17th, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

Florida Chief Financial Officer donned her hat as State Fire Marshall today to dispense holiday safety tips. For starters, dont leave your tree or outside decorations on when you leave the house, water your tree, make sure the light cords for your tree arent frayed, and dont forget to blow out any candles before going to bed or leaving the house. Sink says the most important item you need could save you if you dont heed the safety tips.

Well, youve heard some very valuable tips, but if theres one most important thing that a family can do its this little thing right here, the smoke detector, Sink said. First of all, that you have smoke detectors in your homes and secondly, they dont do any good unless the batteries are operational.

Sink says to check the batteries in smoke detectors at least once a month.
