Holiday Entertaining

  • Test your smoke alarms and tell guests about your home fire escape plan. Ensure they are aware of all exits in your home.
  • Keep children and pets away from lit candles.
  • Keep matches and lighters up high in a locked cabinet.
  • Stay in the kitchen when cooking.
  • Ask smokers to smoke outside. Remind smokers to keep their smoking materials with them so young children do not touch them.
  • Provide large, deep ashtrays for smokers. Wet cigarette butts with water before discarding.
  • Don't drink and drive or let your guests drink and drive. Make sure you plan ahead and have a designated driver, arrange for a cab or other alternative transportation.
