The John Scott and Dale Rifenberg Insurance Agencies of Dowagiac Offer Safety Tips for Holiday Decorations This Season

Dowagiac, Michigan (PRWEB) December 04, 2013

According to the National Fire Protection Association, there are about 230 home fires across the United States caused by Christmas trees each year. In order to help keep local families safe this holiday season and decrease the likelihood of this dangerous situation occurring, the John Scott and Dale Rifenberg Insurance Agencies have released safety and fire prevention tips for families to remember while decorating their houses this holiday season.

Holiday decoration safety and fire prevention tips:

  •     Fresh Christmas trees that are not properly taken care of can become very dry and create a dangerous fire hazard. In order to avoid this potentially deadly incident, routinely check the needles and trunk for freshness. Fresh trees have needles that are hard to pull off or break, and the trunk is sticky from resin. Make sure that all trees are placed away from heat sources in order to prevent them from drying out sooner.
  •     All decorative candles should be placed out of reach of children, and not near flammable household items or decorations such as drapes. Be sure to put out all candles and never leave them unattended.
  •     Check all sets of lights for damaged wires or bulbs in order to prevent a fire hazard. Avoid plugging in too many sets of lights into one extension cord. In fact, it is suggested that no more than three sets of lights are being used by one single extension cord at a time. Also, make sure that all decorative lights are shut off whenever the house will be left empty.
  •     Create and practice a fire escape plan, and teach children the importance of understanding and following fire safety practices.

The John Scott and Dale Rifenberg Insurance Agencies hope that by following these tips, local Michigan families will be safer this holiday season. However, since not all accidents are preventable, the agency would also like to remind families to review their homeowners insurance policies. Typically, fire damages are not covered by a standard home insurance policy, so it’s crucial for homeowners to understand their coverage and seek any further protection that they may require. The agents of the John Scott and Dale Rifenberg Insurance Agencies urge local residents to contact them directly at 800-810-2123 for further home safety tips, or to learn more about protecting homes through the right insurance policy.
