Twitter_logo_blueOn December 11th at 2:00pm ET, NFPA and United States Fire Administration (USFA) will be holding a live Twitter Q&A all about holiday fire safety. 

NFPA and USFA are working together to remind everyone this year that home fires are more prevalent in winter than in any other season, due in part to an increase in cooking and heating fires. During the Put a Freeze on Winter Fires campaign, safety information on cooking, heating, holiday decorations, candles, Christmas trees, and electrical issues will be emphasized so that you can stay safe all season. 

To participate in this Twitter Q&A, please follow along with both @NFPA and @USFire on Twitter, and use the chat's hashtag - #HolidaySafety to submit questions that you would like answered by experts from both organizations related to holiday fire safety. Questions may be submitted in advance, but be sure to tune in on December 11th at 2:00pm ET for the answers.
