Holiday safety should be the issue that burns brightest from late November to mid-January, when families gather, parties are scheduled and travel spikes. An estimated 15,000 injuries involving holiday decorating were seen in emergency rooms during the 2015 season. Creekbend Property Management has provided some basic precautions so your family and guests remain safe and injury-free throughout the season!
                           1.  Never use lighted candles near trees or garland
                           2.  Keep poisonous plants (poinsettias) out of reach of children and pets
                           3.  Keep trees away from fireplaces, radiators and other heat sources
                           4.  Make sure your tree has a stable platform
                           5.  Choose an artificial tree that is labeled fire resistant
                           6.  If using a natural tree, make sure it is well watered
                           7.  Check holiday lights for fraying, bare spots, gaps in the insulation or excessive kinking in the wire
                           8.  Turn off tree lights and decorations when not in use
                           9.  When putting up decorations use a step stool or ladder to reach high places
                        10.  Be mindful of sharp or broken ornaments when unpacking; lacerations are one of the top-reported                                                  decorating-related injury!
                        11.  Ensure guests make it home safely after holiday get-togethers by designating a sober driver
                        12.  Don’t give the gift of food poisoning! When preparing a meal, wash hands, utensils, sink and anything else                                  that touches raw meat. Always reheat leftovers to at least 165*F
