Christmas Tree Safety

As you deck the halls this holiday season, be fire smart. A small fire that spreads to a Christmas tree can grow large very quickly.

  • Choose trees with fresh, green needles that do not fall off when touched
  • Before playing the tree in the stand cut 2″ from the base of the trunk
  • Make sure the tree is at least three feed away from any heat source (fireplaces, radiators, candles, heat vents, or lights)
  • Make sure the tree is not blocking an exit
  • Be sure to add water daily to the tree stand
