Well it's that time of year, the festive season, with all its decorations and of course that would not be complete without a Christmas tree in the living room. However every year there are injuries and tragedies that happen during the holiday season.
If you have a real Christmas tree, make certain that it is well watered (it could save your families lives as well as your home)...
A demonstration showing how flammable a dry Christmas tree can be as opposed to a tree watered regularly. This test was conducted by the National Fire Protection Association and Underwriters Laboratories.
In addition to ensuring a real tree is well watered, always every year check over the entire tree lighting strings, look for damaged wires, exposed sockets, plug connectors, make certain any extension cords are in perfect condition and are rated at a higher power capacity than required. this may take some calculations to determine exactly the total power required for all powered items on the tree.
