Christmas trees: U.S. fire departments annually respond to 250 structure fires caused by Christmas trees. Nearly half of them are caused by electrical prob- lems, and one in four resulted from a heat source that's too close to the tree. Here are some guidelines for picking, placing and lighting a tree: If you have an artificial tree, be sure it' labeled, certified or identi- fied by the manufacturer as fire- retardant. If you choose a fresh tree, make sure the green needles don't fall off when touched; before placing it in the stand, cut 1-2 inches from the base of the trunk. Add water to the tree stand, and be sure to water it Safety (Continued from Page 1) daily. Make sure your tree is at least three feet away from any heat source, like fireplaces, space heaters, radiators, candles, and heat vents or lights. Make sure the tree is not block- ing an exit. Use lights that have the label of an independent testing laboratory, and make sure you know whether they are designed for indoor or out- door use. Replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords, or loose bulb connections. Connect no more than three strands of mini-string sets and a maximum of 50 bulbs for screw-in bulbs. Never use lit candles to deco- rate the tree. Always turn off Christmas tree lights before leaving the home or going to bed. After Christmas, 'get rid of the tree. Dried-out trees are a fire haz- ard and ghoutd not be left in the home or garage, or placed outside the home. Think green. Check to see if your community has a Christmas tree recycling program. Bring outdoor electrical lights inside after the holidays to prevent hazards and make them last longer. The holidays are a truly special time of year. Following these fire safety precautions and measures will ensure it remains one.
