A Christmas tree fire is the last thing anyone wants. A Christmas tree catching on fire can be devastating, especially if not extinguished quickly. One of the most important ways to help prevent a Christmas-tree fire is to keep your Christmas tree watered. It is easy to forget to water your tree, so we have designed a Christmas tree fire prevention device to help you remember to water your tree when the water gets low. Our Christmas tree fire prevention device is called the Evergreen Elf. The Evergreen Elf will light up and make noise when the water gets low. It is a fun and interactive way to remember to keep your tree watered. Some other tips to help prevent tree fires are:
- Heat – Do not put your tree close to a heater vent. The hot air will cause your tree to dry out faster, which will increase the likelihood of a fire.
- Remove – When Christmas is over, be sure to remove your tree soon after. Do not wait for your tree to dry out before removing it from your home.
- Lights – Everyone loves to put lights on their tree. It is an important Christmas tradition for many. Before you drape your tree in lights plug them in and make sure that they are working and that there aren’t any frayed wires. Also, never overload an outlet with too many strands of lights.
- Fire Extinguisher – Make sure that you have a fire extinguisher that is easily accessible, that it is not expired, and that everyone in the home know how to use it.
Between following these tips and using a Christmas tree fire prevention device, we are confident you will be prepared to safely enjoy your Christmas tree all through the holiday season without added fear of a fire.
