Stay safe while you deck the halls this holiday season. Hundreds of house fires are caused by dry Christmas trees and unsafe holiday and decorative lighting each year. Make sure to install smoke and carbon monoxide alarms throughout your home, practice safe home heating, and if you use candles for religious or decorative purposes, make sure not leave them unattended.
If a fire occurs in your home, evacuate everyone as fast as possible, close the doors behind you and call 911. To learn more about fire safety, visit FDNYsmart.org, or meet up with Hot Dog and Siren when they come to your neighborhood!
