Tis’ the season for festive decorations, colorful lights, and corporate christmas parties. However it is also a time full of tragedy as well.

Fire damage is probably the last thing on your companies mind, but you may want to move it up on your list of priorities; preparation is the key!
- Water Christmas tree regularly
- Pay attention to Christmas lights and decorations
- Use candle alternatives
- Clean Chimney often
- Use UL-approved lights and cords.
