  • Be sure that all of your smoke alarms are working properly and that they all have fresh batteries.
  • Do not allow Christmas trees or decorations to obstruct corridors, exit ways, or other means of egress.
  • Open flames such as from candles, lanterns, kerosene heaters, and gas-fired heaters should not be located on or near Christmas trees or other similar combustible materials.
  • Artificial Christmas trees should be labeled, or otherwise identified or certified, by the manufacturer as being "flame retardant" or "flame resistive."
