Holiday Meals and Entertaining Need Time and Attention, Too

Make Safety Count in Montgomery County!

Use Holiday Decorations Wisely and Carefully.

Cooking and candle fires, as well as careless smoking annually cause millions of dollars in damage and injure dozens of residents in Montgomery County. Remember, during the holidays there seems to always be an increased activity in the kitchen especially when entertaining guests. Also be mindful and careful with candles and smoking materials, particularly when guests, pets and small children are present.

Following several simple fire safety tips can boost survival rates dramatically. Knowledge is the best fire protection: It is important that all residents know to have a working smoke alarm on each level of a home, have an escape plan (know how to get out quickly) and call the fire department from a safe area, preferably a neighbor’s house.
