Happy Holidays from the UL FSRI team!
We often talk about how fast fire has become and how the time to escape has dropped from 17 minutes to approx. 3 minutes. If your Christmas tree is to catch fire, that time may become even less. On average, one of every 32 reported home Christmas tree fires resulted in a death, compared to an average of one death per 143 total reported home fires. This season, we want you and your family to be safe, so we have created this video to share some important holiday fire safety tips.
Aside from the seasonal tips, always remember to:
- Install/ check to make sure you have working smoke alarms inside and outside every sleeping area and on every level of the home
- Practice your fire escape plans and include holiday guests
- Always close your bedroom door before going to bed #CloseBeforeYouDoze
