Some great safety tips from Police Chief Scott O’Brien and Fire Chief Mike Auteri to help your holidays be safe and enjoyable.

Safety tips:

1. Be extra vigilant about locking your doors and windows

2. Get your locks inspected if you are unsure about their ability to protect you and your family.

3. When disposing of boxes that contained larger items, like TV’s and stereo equipment, break them down so they will fit all the way in your trash can. If a thief knows what you have they are more likely to try and get it.

Fire safety: According to the U.S. Fire Administration nearly 47,000 fires occur during the holidays claiming more than 500 lives.

1. Place Christmas trees, candles, and other holiday decorations at least three feet away from heat sources.

2. Purchase flame retardant artificial trees. If purchasing a live tree make sure the needles are soft and not falling off. Keep it watered

3.Make sure that all light strings are in good condition. Don’t use anything with frayed wiring.

4. Always unplug your tree and holiday lights before leaving home or going to bed.

5. Never use lit candles to decorate a tree.

6. Use only sturdy tree stands designed not to tip over.

7. Keep anything that can catch fire away from your stove.

8. Designate one person to walk around your home to make sure that all candles and smoking materials are properly extinguished after guests leave.

9. Smoke alarms save lives. Make sure you have them installed where they should be and done correctly. Also make sure to change the batteries yearly.Having a working smoke detector reduces one’s chances of dying in a fire by nearly half.

Follow these easy tips to have a safe and enjoyable Holiday Season.
