Christmas Safety Tips

If you plan to host a Christmas party, you are responsible for the safety of your guests. It is extremely important to do what you can to make sure there are no injuries caused due to your decorations or any other mishaps in your home.


  • Christmas Tree –  An artificial tree that is fire resistant is your safest option. If you are planning to purchase a real tree, make sure it’s fresh. A dry tree can be a fire hazard and unsafe in your home.
  • Lights – Make sure the lights you decorate around your home have been tested for safety. Cords should be cleared away to avoid any trips. Turn off your light decorations if you aren’t home.
  • Hanging Ornaments –  Safely secure your ornaments on walls and other areas so they do not detach and hurt your guest.

General Safety Tips

  • Candles –  Don’t place candles near flammable objects such as a tree or curtains. Make sure to blow out candles when they are not in use.
  • Clear walkways and pathways – Eliminate any decorations or cords that can cause someone to trip and fall.

What To Do After A Christmas Accident

Being proactive will make a difference. However, accidents can still happen. Take steps now to be prepared for any accident that can occur. As a host, you should keep a first aid kit in hand. Knowing where a fire extinguisher is stored can save a life, if a fire starts.

As a guest, if you are injured make sure to get to a doctor as soon as possible. Take photos of your injuries and document how your accident occurred.
