Winter Holiday Fire Safety

While nobody likes to think of dangers in the home while celebrating the festive season, the fact is that bringing some of the traditional elements of the Christmas holidays into your home also increases safety hazard potential.

The Alberta Emergency Management Agency (AEMA) has a webpage dedicated to Winter Holiday Fire Safety. This page is packed with useful information on how to prevent emergencies from happening and how to react calmly and well-prepared if they do.

“The campaign kit is packed with useful information for the public on fire prevention and safety during the winter holiday season. Content includes holiday season fire statistics, fire safety tips related to cooking, home heating, smoking, candles, electrical hazards, Christmas trees, gifts ideas for the holidays, etc.”

Check out the AEMA website to keep you, your family and friends safe this holiday season.
