Holiday Home Safety Tips

Holiday Home Safety Tips:

  • Keep windows, garages and sheds locked, and don’t forget to use deadbolts.
  • Use timers to turn on lights and a television or radio.
  • Maintain at least a foot of space between a burning candle and anything that can catch fire.
  • When hanging lights outdoors, avoid using staples or nails which can damage wiring. Use UL-rated clips or wires instead.
  • Don't overload electrical circuits with holiday lighting; unplug your tree and outdoor lights before going to bed.
  • Don't leave a spare key in a "hiding place." Burglars know where to look.
  • Lock your power box with an electricity authority lock (lock to which you and the electric company have a key) so that your home security alarm system can't be cut off from the power supply.

Wishing you a safe and happy holiday season!
