Tis the time of year when decorations come out in the home and office and also those lovely Christmas lights...
A large proportion of house fires are started around the Christmas season are caused by electrical issues. Most electrics simply require just a single spark to ignite your Christmas tree.
However, there are a few steps you can take to prevent your Christmas tree and your celebrations going up in flames.
Just make sure you are not having too many lights or festive items coming from the same power points or extension lead. Also any outdoor lights and leads have a suitable IP rating and are fit for purpose....
💥Inspect Christmas Lights for any Damages
💥Connect Outdoor Lighting to an RCD
💥Always Read and Follow Instructions on Box
💥Turn Off Lights When Leaving the House or Going to Bed
💥Test Your Smoke Alarm Regularly
💥Never Overload Power Sockets
After all the only thing that should have any chance of being over cooked needs to be the Turkey.
If you have decided to buy an authentic Christmas tree, we recommend watering it daily to prevent it from drying out. By watering your Christmas tree, your likelihood for your tree catching fire will be severely reduced. However, make sure to keep an eye out for any electrical appliances or sockets nearby.
