Even if the holidays seem far away, it’s never too early to start planning! The holiday season is a hectic and busy time for everyone, but with some proper planning and preparation, you can stay safe and have peace of mind during the holidays. Here at Evergreen Elf, we believe that a safe holiday is an enjoyable one, and we have a few holiday safety tips that you can get started on now.
- Order Early. A good portion of holiday shopping is now done online. While it is convenient to shop from home in your pajamas, monitor the delivery times carefully so you can be home to receive the packages. Porch pirates are real and out in force over the holidays.
- Investigate Your Electrical System. Fires aren’t only caused by dried-out trees during the holidays! Overloaded electrical circuits can start fires or leave you with other electrical problems.
- Practice Preparedness. Now is the time to get prepared for the holidays by beefing up your other security measures. Make sure that your smoke alarms, CO2 alarms, fire extinguishers and other security are easily accessible and up to date!
- Protect Your Tree. House fires are a serious concern– especially with a real tree. They smell great, but dry trees are basically kindling waiting to happen. Try using our Evergreen Elf to ensure your tree stays watered and hydrated, which helps to prevent fires.
These are just some of the holiday safety tips that we have to offer. To learn more about how Evergreen Elf can make your holidays safer, please give us a call today!
