The #1 Home Fire Risk in December

According to fire officials,
December is the peak month for a
certain type of fire in the home.
If you think the risk involves
candles, think again. Although
candle safety is extremely
important at any time of the year,
electrical fires are the type that
peak during this month.
Why? At this time of year, people
tend to haul out old electronic
appliances, lighting and electrical
cords, as well as other items
— such as electric toys and
decorations. Some of these may
be several years old and have
frayed wiring and other damage
that could cause a fire.
Before using such items, be sure
to check them thoroughly. Look
carefully for tears, frays and other
signs of damage to the cords. If
there is any damage, replace the
item, rather than attempting to
repair it.
Pay particular attention to
portable heaters, which can easily
ignite paper and other flammable
materials that come in contact
with the unit.
