When decorating your Christmas tree and your house ready for Christmas, remember these safety tips to keep your house and family safe this Christmas:

  1. Don’t hang decorations like tinsel from lights or heaters, they can catch alight easily
  2. Remember to turn off fairy lights and blow out candles before heading to bed or out for the day
  3. If you have any outdoor lights, make sure electrical connectors are kept off the ground and out of rain gutters.
  4. Make sure any cards or decorations are not placed above an open fire
  5. Remember that decorative winter plants like holly or mistletoe are poisonous when ingested – so be sure to keep out of reach of children.
