  • Place tree where it will not block exits, fire cabinets or safety equipment.
  • Use grounded extension cords for holiday lights.
  • Unplug holiday lights when unattended.
  • Use flame-retardant decorations.
  • Never hang decorations near ceiling lights.
  • Burning candles in the building is prohibited.
