On the Sixth Day of Christmas…keep lights bright.

Only use lights that have been certified by a recognized organization such as CSA, ULC or C-UL. Make sure you use indoor lights inside your home and outdoor lights outside.

Check the light strings and extension cords, throwing out any that are frayed or have exposed wires, loose connections or broken sockets.

Never run electrical cords through doorways or under carpets.  Keep electrical cords away from children and pets. Turn off all holiday lights before you go to bed or leave your home.

On the Fifth Day of Christmas…make your tree safe.

When buying a real tree, check that it is fresh (needles are hard to pull off and branches bend without breaking). Cut 4 centimeters off of the bottom of the tree before placing in water. Be sure to water the tree daily – trees can consume up to four litres of water a day. Place the tree away from high traffic areas, doorways, heating vents, radiators, stoves, fireplaces and burning candles. If young children are around, use safe decorations.

Health Canada has some great holiday safety tips:

On the Fourth Day of Christmas…decorate with safety in mind.

Never leave burning candles unattended and keep them away from children and pets, decorations and wrapping paper.

Cut candle wicks short to prevent a high flame and if candles are used in a centerpiece, make sure they don’t burn low enough to ignite the decoration.
