Tips on Christmas tree safety

As many families take part in putting up fresh Christmas trees in their homes, local fire department officials remind people to take precautions to prevent a disaster.   According to the National Fire Protection Association, Christmas trees alone result over 14 million dollars, annually, in property damage.  Egg Harbor Fire Chief Steve Schopf shares some safety tips. 

 

 

When decorating the tree, Schopf recommends using the new LED lighting which is much cooler than the old incandescent lights.  He says always turn off all lights before going to bed.  You can find more fire safety tips for your home with the below link.
