SAFE CHRISTMAS: The
Christmas season is one for fun
and fellowship but it can be one
of sorrow and tragedy. Many di
sastrous home flrea have been
caused because of faulty Christ
mas lights, and many painful
falls have come from putting the
Star at the top of the tree.
To lusure you and your family
of a truly Merry Christmas,
check yourself on these safety

mas lights frayed or damaged?
2. Are the plugs cracked?
3. Is your Christmas tree root
ci in a pall of damp soil or sand
to prevent its drying out. Dry
needles exposed to hot bulbs in
4. Is your tree placed to close
to. window curtains? Many cur
tain materials ignite easily.
5. Do you leave the Christmas
lights on when no noe is in the
room or in the house. Leaving
the lights on for long periods of
time can cause trouble, particu
larly if there Is no one about to
check the fixtures occasionally.
6. If you have lighting out-of
doors, Is It the type of lighting
that haa been weatherproofed.
Severe shock may result from
using Indoor lights outside In
7. Take precautlona In trim
ming the tree. Use a firm step
ladder for decorating the top of
the tree. #
8. Haa any Inflammable ma
terial been placed about the base
of the tree?
9. When the trimming job Is
done, Is' the floor free of loose
needles or ornament fragments
that may cause falls?

ped about an open fire.
