08 Dec Tips for a Hazard Free Holiday Season
Staying safe this holiday season might be easier said than done. The holiday season can be quite dangerous due to a combination of holiday decorating accidents, home fires, elevated incidences of drunk driving, and other hazards that are inherent at this time of year. Your best line of defense during the holiday season is to be smart, use caution, and be aware of potentially dangerous situations.
Common accidents that occur in and around the home during the holiday season include:
- Falling off ladders while decorating the exterior of a home or a tall Christmas tree
- House fires due to candles that are placed too close to a Christmas tree or wrapped presents
- Kitchen fires because the cook is distracted by house guests and holiday festivities
- Drunk driving car accidents due to increased alcohol consumption at this time of year
The holiday season is supposed to be a jolly time of year, not a time to be dealing with accidents, injuries and other types of preventable disasters.
