Holiday Decorating Safety Tips

With millions of Americans decorating their homes in celebration of the holiday season, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is urging families to keep safety in mind when stringing holiday lights, decorating Christmas trees, lighting candles, and using fireplaces in their homes. Check out a CPSC Press Release and Full PDF Brochure from the CPSC, for in-depth safety tips on holiday decorations. CPSC estimates that every year there are more than 14,000 candle-related fires, 200 fires caused by dried-out Christmas trees, and about 10,000 people treated in hospital emergency rooms as a result of falls, cuts, shocks and burns related to holiday decorating.
