With the holiday season fast approaching, Wetaskiwin Fire Services would like to provide some safety tips to help keep your holiday joyful.
If you plan on decorating your home with a natural tree this year, it’s important to keep it watered. Just as we need water every day to stay healthy, so does your tree. A dried-out Christmas tree is a dangerous fire hazard and can lead to an entire living room being consumed by flames only one minute after the fire starts.
Skeptical? Check out the video below showing how fast a dry Christmas tree can burn.
Stay safe and enjoy a happy holiday season!
