Staying Safe This Holiday Season

Posted:

LEWISBURG (WVVA)- Firefighters say that the number of fire calls they receive during the winter and holiday season goes up exponentially compared to other times of the year.

A few tips to prevent a house fire from happening to you:

1. Make sure your lights are in good condition. 2. Turn your holiday lights off when you leave

the house or go to bed because, a light can short out at any time.

3. Don't hang items such as curtains Christmas trees next to furnaces or fire places.  4. Watch

how many items you plug into an outlet. If it gets warm then there are too many things plugged in.

 Any any case of a fire make sure to have an exit plan for your family.
