The holiday season is a time of joy and celebration for many people. Decorating your home, attending the office Christmas party, going out to celebrate New Year’s Eve, traveling to visit family – many of us enjoy all of these things and more. However, the holidays are also a time when safety can be an issue. Here are a few tips to help keep you and your family safe during the holiday season.

Decoration Hazards – Decorating your home and/or yard for Christmas is great fun, but you need to be safe. Always check electrical cords on lights for frayed or exposed wires. Make sure your Christmas tree is watered to avoid drying out. Refrain from using candles – and never leave them unattended if you do use them.

Beware of Thieves – Unfortunately, theft increases during the holidays. Make sure your home and vehicles are locked up tight. If you are having packages delivered, consider requesting signature confirmation or have a neighbor watch for package deliveries and hold onto them for you.

Travel Tips – If you’re traveling during the holidays, it’s a good idea to refrain from posting about your trip on social media until you are back home. If word gets around to the wrong people, your house could become a target for burglary. You should also leave a few lights on both inside and outside of your home and ask neighbors to keep an eye on your house.
