Fire Safety Tips for a “Scent”-sational Christmas

Fire Safety Tips for a “Scent”-sational Christmas

Christmas is a “High-Risk” time for fires, due to the high use of candles, lights and yes, increased consumption of alchol. There would be nothing worse than facing the devistation and destruction of a house fire on one of the happiest times of the year. One of the biggest causes of house fires are unattended candles – so I would recommend the gift of safety with a Scentsy Wickless Warmer.

  • Place real Christmas trees securly in a sturdy based filled with water. Metal stands cause trees to dry out and become flammable.
  • Make sure your artificial tree is pre-treated to increase flame resistance.
  • Keep tree away from candles, heaters, fireplace or any other heat source.
  • Dispose of tree properly – Never burn a real tree in the fireplace.
  • View a video of how fast a “Dry” tree can develop into a fire.

Christmas Lights

Indoors:

  • Only buy Christmas lights with Approved Safety Standard.
  • Check all connections and look for any frayed wires.
  • Follow manufactures instructions.
  • If ever in doubt, Throw Them Out.
  • Do not overload plugs.
  • Unplug all Christmas lights when leaving the home or going to bed for the evening.

Outdoors:

  • Make sure lights are to be used outdoors.
  • Check all connections and look for any frayed wires.
  • Follow manufactures instructions.
  • Never use indoor extension cords outside.
  • Keep outdoor cords above ground and out of puddles and snow.
  • Make sure trees that are lit outside are not touching power lines

Candles:

  • Keep them out of reach of children and pets.
  • Trim the wick to 6mm (1/4 inch) each time before burning.
  • Keep burning candles away from drafts, vents and air flow.
  • Never place a candle on top of a TV and keep far away from any drapes/curtains.
  • ALWAYS extinguish candles before leaving the house or going to bed.
  • Never use candles on Christmas trees. (Real or Artificial)
  • Remember HOT WAX burns.

Remember there is a Safe Alternative to Candles … Scentsy Warmers.
