4 Fire Hazards During the Holiday Season

The holidays are full of excitement, family, fun, and celebration. However, during many of these things, potential fire hazards surround us. "U.S. fire departments responded to an estimated average of 860 home structure fires per year that began with decorations, excluding Christmas trees, in 2009-2013. (Source: NFPA)

It's important to remember to stay safe and to use caution throughout the season. Many of us use candles to decorate and to have our house smelling nice but did you know that the top 3 days for home candle fires were:

  • Christmas
  • New Year's Day
  • Christmas Eve

According to the NFPA, candles are among the top hazards this season. Awareness is the first part of prevention, so we've created some helpful tips for you and your family.
