Put safety at the top of the list in the life and movement that prevails.
To help you, we have collected some of the most important safety tips for the holiday to protect you, your family and your home.
- Be safe when decorating. Put safety first when decorating and exterior furnishings. Always make sure the ladders are firm before climbing them and let someone hold the ladders firmly as you climb. Keep flammable objects such as Christmas trees and drawers away from the fireplace or radiator. Place your Christmas tree in a sturdy base and place candles in sturdy holders.
- Burn safely indoors and outdoors. If you have an indoor fire or an outdoor fire, remember to burn safety tips. Never throw wrapping paper, receipts or tissue paper in the fire.
- Prepare for holiday trips. Remember road safety if you are visiting another state or family members during the holidays. Get your vehicle ready for the winter weather, store an emergency kit indoors, check for weather conditions, clear your headlights from snow and give yourself plenty of time to take you to your destination.
- Protect delivered packages. Online bookings have skyrocketed, especially during the holiday season. If you have ordered online and expect delivery to the front door, protect deliveries from theft by tracking your shipments, leaving specific delivery instructions and installing a front door camera.
- Keep gifts out of sight. Hiding Christmas presents in a closet or storage space keeps them out of sight of children… and burglars. If someone saw through your window or front door during the holiday season, you would not want gifts advertised or exhibited. The safest option is to keep them out of sight until it's time to give them away.
- Dresser drawers at the curb. After the gifts have opened, do not advertise them in the trash. Delete your personal information, divide it into small fragments and try to hide markings on the sides of the drawers that show what was inside.
- Protect your home when you are away. Are you traveling during the holidays? Protect your home from theft by alerting neighbors to your absence, having outdoor lighting on, reinforcing sliding doors and locking all doors and windows.
- Review your credit card statements. Review credit card purchases throughout and after the holiday period to catch fraudulent or incorrect charges.
