Get Ready To Sparkle!

Dear Fantastic Residents,

Get ready to sprinkle your homes with holiday cheer, because it's the most wonderful time of the year! As you gear up for festive feasts and merry celebrations, we want to ensure your holidays are filled with joy and safety. So, let's talk about some easy-peasy precautions to keep the good times rolling.

Cooking and Baking Extravaganza

Picture this: a kitchen filled with delightful aromas, laughter, and mouth-watering delights. To ensure your culinary escapades stay magical, remember to keep the little ones and flammable items away from the stove and oven. And hey, no one wants a kitchen disaster, so clean up those greasy spills as you dance around the kitchen. If you're deep-frying a turkey, let it sizzle safely away from structures and trees. Oh, and make sure that turkey is all thawed out, following the fryer's dance moves as per the manufacturer's instructions.

Dazzling Christmas Trees

Who doesn't love the aroma of a real Christmas tree? Keep the holiday spirit alive by watering your tree daily – dry needles and wood are party poopers when it comes to fire hazards. Go ahead, deck those branches with twinkling lights, but don't go overboard – three strings of lights max, please. Replace any worn or broken light strings with new stars. And remember to unplug those lights before you hit the hay or head out for festive frolics.

Menorah or Kinara Magic

Whether it's the Festival of Lights or Kwanzaa, let your celebrations shine bright! For the traditionalists with candles, keep the flame alive by placing menorahs and kinaras on non-flammable surfaces. Keep the curtain away from the candle tango, and always be a responsible candle parent – never leave them unattended.

Warm and Cozy Fireplaces

There's nothing quite like the crackle of a cozy fire during the holidays. To keep the vibes warm and safe, maintain a three-foot radius between the flames and anything that can fuel the fire, from wrapping paper to your coziest rug. Don't forget to employ a fire screen to keep those sparks in check, and ensure the embers are sound asleep before you tuck in for the night.

Sparkling Fireworks

Let's light up the sky! If your New Year celebrations involve fireworks, find a spot far away from buildings and trees. Keep the audience, including kids and furry friends, at a safe distance. And just in case the sparks start to fly in the wrong direction, have water or a fire extinguisher on standby. If your area is experiencing a drought, consider a rain check on the fireworks – we don't want any unplanned wildfires stealing the spotlight.

Wishing you a season filled with laughter, love, and safety! Here's to a joyous and hazard-free holiday season.
