Winter holidays are a time for families and friends to get together. But that also means a greater risk for fire. Following a few simple tips will ensure a happy and fire-safe holiday season. Check out NFPA's "Project Holiday" page for free safety resources and helpful tips such as:

  • Choose decorations that are flame resistant or flame retardant.
  • Keep lit candles away from decorations and other things that can burn.
  • Some lights are only for indoor or outdoor use, but not both.
  • Replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Connect no more than three strands of mini light sets and a maximum of 50 bulbs for screw-in bulbs. Read manufacturer’s instructions for number of LED strands to connect.

Here are a few more shots from today's satellite media tour with NFPA's Judy Comoletti. She's being beamed to dozens of TV stations around the United States for interviews about holiday fire safety.
