Outdoor Decorating Safety

Each year people are injured & property is damaged from improperly installed outdoor holiday decorations. A pamphlet from the Consumer Product Safety Commission shares some tips on being safe while installing outdoor decorations this holiday:

  • Use only decorations/lights rated for outdoor use
  • Check all lights/wires for damage and replace as necessary
  • Fasten lights & decorations securely, use clips or other fasteners – DON’T hammer/staple directly into the wires
  • Use no more than 3 strands per extension cord
  • Use a timer to turn off your lights automatically when you go to bed or leave the house
