Closer To Home

Okay, let’s bring our attention a little closer to home for a minute. I’ve noticed a slight upswing in the frequency of home fires in our area this week. (You probably noticed it too if you’ve been following us on twitter.) 

I don’t know if they’re being caused by heaters, holiday decorations or other random factors, but let me just post these fire safety tips to cover all the bases:
– Fire safety with real Christmas trees
– Fire safety with fake Christmas trees: plastic and aluminum
Candle safety
Heater/fireplace safety
Please look these over and pass them on to all your contacts. Let’s make this holiday season safe, happy, and totally uneventful.
