🎄 Inspect Decorations Before Use Begin by examining each decoration for damage. Check lights for frayed wires and broken sockets to prevent fire hazards.

🎄 Use the Right Ladder Employ a sturdy ladder for high placements and avoid overreaching to prevent falls.

🎄 Opt for LED Lights

LED lights are safer, more energy-efficient, and longer-lasting than traditional bulbs.

🎄 Keep Decorations Away from Heat Sources

Position decorations away from fireplaces, candles, and heaters to reduce fire risks.

🎄 Turn Off Lights When Unattended

Always switch off holiday lights when not at home or while sleeping to avoid electrical fires and save energy.

🎄 Secure Outdoor Decorations

Ensure outdoor decorations are fastened securely to withstand weather conditions.

🎄 Child and Pet Safety

Keep small, hazardous decorations out of reach of children and pets.

Prevent circuit overloads by using power strips wisely and adhering to wattage recommendations.
