Safety is the number one "gift" on Santa's list; here is a safety message from all of us!

The hustle and bustle of the holiday season can create the perfect environment for unintentional injuries. It only takes a second to overlook a burning candle or forget to check holiday lighting.

- Each year, fires occurring during the holiday season claim the lives of more than 400 Americans and injure 1,650 more.
- Be sure to check holiday lights for frayed plugs and loose wiring.
- Don't overload extension cords.
- Be sure space heaters are properly placed.
- Turn lights off before leaving the house or going to bed.
- Candle-related fires are one of the most common holiday home hazards, averaging more than 12,000 each year, resulting in 136 deaths, more than 1,000 injuries.
- Be sure candles are extinguished before leaving a room or going to bed.
- About 5,800 people - two to three every hour -were treated in emergency departments for fall-related injuries sustained while decorating during the holiday season.
- Keep safety in mind when climbing ladders and step stools.
- Be sure ladders extend at least 3 ft. past the edge of the roof.
- Non metal ladders should be used around electricity.
- Christmas trees, both natural and artificial, were the item first ignited in an estimated average of 240 reported home structure fires per year.
- Make sure your tree has plenty of water and check it often.
