Safety Tips When Entertaining for the Holidays
When cooking for guests remember to keep an eye on the range.
If guests are smoking, provide plenty of large, deep ashtrays and check them frequently.
After the guests leave check on, between, and under upholstery and cushions and inside trashcans for smoking materials that may be smoldering.
Keep matches and lighters up high, out of sight, and out of reach of children.
Keep candles away from decorations and other combustible materials, and do not use lit candles to decorate Christmas trees.
Turn off all the Christmas lights and ensure that all candles are extinguished before leaving the house or going to bed.
Check smoke detectors.
