Have A Safe Black Friday

as BLACK FRIDAY is upon us please take a moment to set some safety precautions for the HOLIDAYS

Park in a well lit area
Notice where you parked your car
Have your keys in your hand when returning to your car
If possible shop with a friend - it's much more fun 

Home Alone
If you are travelling for the holidays ask a friend to pick up your newspapers
Hold the mail 
Put lights on timers to turn your lights off and on 

It's Beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Check and inpect your lights ...check wiring
Don't overload your extension cord
Turn off before going to bed or leaving the house (put on a timer)

If using a LIVE Christmas tree select the freshest possible
Cut the base at a  45% angle 
Keep water level above the cut - check daily
Place tree AWAY from all heat sources - this will cause the tree to dry out faster

Place CANDLES away from decorations ... wrapping paper 
Do not leave a burning candle unattended

Someone's In The Kitchen
Keep pot handles turned in
Don't leave items cooking on the stove 
Use Pot Holders to remove food from the oven

Keep a FIRE EXTINGUISHER near your Christmas tree
Have a FIRE EXTINGUISHER in your kitchen
Make sure your family has a fire emergency escape plan 

Tis the Season ... 
Celebrate a safe Holiday ....
