Home Health & Safety. Christmas Tree Fires

Someone just sent me this video which I thought I might as well post it here seeing as Christmas decorations will start going up in homes around Australia tomorrow.

It's amazing how quickly the Christmas tree on the left (unwatered) goes up in flames versus the one on the right (regularly watered).

If you're going to have a real Christmas tree, ensure that

  • You only have lights on when you are around (definitely turn them off before bed)
  • You have a fire extinguisher readily available in your house.
  • You check your lights for cable damage (Some can be ooooold and may be frayed); and
  • You regularly water your tree to make it last longer and less flammable
