Safety tips for decorating with lights.

Those injuries include falls, cuts, and shocks related to holiday lights, electrical decorations, and Christmas trees.

The following safety tips to keep yourself and your family safe while decorating:

  • Always turn off holiday lights when you leave your home or go to sleep.
  • Carefully inspect holiday light strings each year and discard any with cracked or frayed cords or sockets, or loose connections.
  • Keep yourself, your decorations and equipment at least 10 feet away from power lines.
  • Never exceed the maximum number of strings or devices that may be linked together, as indicated on decoration packaging.
  • Never staple or nail through electrical wires or extension cords, as this may damage the wiring or insulation and cause electrical shock or fire.
