Fire Safety Tips for Christmas
THE HOLIDAYS ARE UPON US
Ah, the Christmas holiday is upon us! That means decorations, food, presents and family! Here at SERVPRO of Fredericksburg, we like to offer tips so you can enjoy a safe, fun, happy holiday.
First, be mindful of where you put the Christmas tree along with decorations. If you plan on using the fireplace, do not place any flammable decorations or the Christmas tree anywhere close by. Many fires are caused by trees and ornaments catching fire from the fire place.
When it comes down to cooking, always be aware of the oven; the temperature, and the timings in which food items need to go in and out. Here at SERVPRO of Fredericksburg, our team has a Christmas dinner party yearly where each teammate brings a dish. Here at SERVPRO, we suggest that when cooking food, use a clean oven, free of grease build up. Grease fires are the most common household fires. Also, when cooking our holiday meal, we know to not wear long sleeves and to protect our hands with oven mitts. Always set hot food on pot holders.
Christmas is a magical time of year and all of us here at SERVPRO wish you and your family the happiest of holidays. If you ever need us for fire or water damage, don't hesitate to call. 540-373-7000.
