Holiday Fire Safey

xmas tree fire

Families all around the world follow in the family tradition of decorating their Christmas trees. It is a very cheerful time of year but we must also take precautions when decorating for the holidays. According to the National Fire Prevention Association, Christmas trees are involved in approximately 400 fires annually. Short-circuiting tree lights are cited as the leading cause.

Christmas Tree Safety

  • Set up trees away from fire places, portable heaters, heater vents and television sets. Make sure not to block doorways.
  • Use only lights that are tested for safety by a recognizable testing laboratory, such as Underwriters’ Labratories.
  • Check natural trees daily, a dry tree catches fire more easily and much quicker than a well-watered tree.
  • Be careful where you place electrical cords. Don’t run them under rugs; walking trigger can weaken the insulation and the wires can overheat. Increasing the changes for fire or electrical shock.
  • Use no more than one extension per outlet.

Safe Candle Use

  • Young children should be taught to stay away from lit candles. Keep candles, lighters and matches out of reach of children and pets.
  • Light them in a safe area.
  • Always check to make sure candles are blown out before leaving the house or going to sleep. Unattended candles invite disaster.

Servpro of North Huntington is here for you 24/7 and always prepared for your emergency situation. We hope you have a happy and healthy holiday!

Frozen Pipe Prevention

Above: A water line to a toilet let go in the middle of winter.
Frozen pipes: When water freezes it expands, which puts pressure on metal and plastic pipes. This can cause pipes to break.
Frozen Pipe Prevention
Warmer Weather
  • Drain water from swimming pool and sprinkler supply lines.
  • Remove, drain and store hoses used outdoors.
  • Close inside valves supplying outdoor hose bibs.
  • Open outside hose bubs to allow water to drain.
  • Keep the outside valve open so that water remaining in pipes can expand without causing the pipe to break.

Colder weather

  • Keep garage door closed if there is a water supply in garage.
  • When it is very cold, let the water drip through pipes that are served by exposed pipes.
  • Keep thermostat set to the same temperature day and night.

Prepare your house before you go away

  • Don’t set thermostat below 55 degrees.
  • Have a friend or neighbor check your house if you are gone for a long period of time.
  • Shut off and drain water system. If you have a fire protection sprinkler system in your house, deactivate it when you shut off water.

Remembering the victims of Hurricane Sandy

Two years ago Hurricane Sandy caused physical and emotional damage. There are so many communities that are still suffering. As many recover and rebuild, we are reminded at how strong our communities are. The volunteers and people that have helped the victims is remarkable.

We look back today to remember the mark Sandy left on us. We will never forget the devastation it caused, the families that suffered and the lives lost.

Are your childrens’ Halloween costumes safe?

Halloween is creeping up on us and many kids have already picked out their costumes, but how safe are they?

the simpsons

Whether your costume is homemade or store bought, there are some safety tips to keep in mind:

  • Look for flame resistant materials: Synthetic fibers like Polyester or Nylon.
  • Glitter can also be more flammable.
  • Be mindful that the costume fits properly. Any long fabric is more likely to graze over a lit jack-o-lantern.
    • Many kids love to be superheroes and princesses but we must be careful of long caps, dress trains, and dangling sleeves.
  • If the children are wearing a mask, make sure there is proper ventilation and the eye holes are big enough for them to see out.
  • Try to work reflector strips into your child’s costume, or give them a flash light or glow sticks.
  • Swords, knives, and similar costume accessories should be short, soft and flexible.

We hope you have a FUN and SAFE Halloween!!!

And remember, SERVPRO of North Huntington is always here for you!
