Many people wait until December 24th to put up the Christmas tree, some because of religious tradition, others because they can get the tree at a bargain or even free. For everyone putting the tree up today and those who already dressed the tree days ago, fire safety is important.
Christmas tree safety is among the topics of the “Put a Freeze on Winter Fires” campaign by NFPA and the United States Fire Administration. NFPA’s safety information, including my video on Christmas tree safety help us to deck the halls while being fire smart.
