Fire Department Offers Christmas Decorating Safety Tips

The Findlay Fire Department is sharing some safety tips to remember when putting up Christmas decorations.

The fire department says a heat source too close to a Christmas tree causes one in every four winter fires.

You should make sure your tree is at least three feet away from heat sources such as fireplaces, radiators and space heaters.

Make sure to always keep lit candles away from decorations and things that can burn.

You should always read the manufacturer’s instructions for the number of light strands to connect.

Make sure to replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections.
