Ho ho ho! The festive season is in full swing and homes across the UK are twinkling with fairy lights and Christmas cheer. But are you taking dangerous risks with your safety during the holidays?
With an average of 102 fires in England each day last December, it’s important to keep electrical safety in mind while enjoying the festive fun.
Here are RJCElectrics five top tips for Christmas:
Even Christmas lights need a break – switch them off when you’re not there to enjoy them
Don’t get distracted when you’re cooking Christmas dinner – with half of house fires starting in the kitchen, it’s more than the turkey that’s at risk of burning.
Don’t overload sockets and try to avoid the use of extension leads or adaptors
If you’ve got a new electrical gadget for Christmas that needs charging, don’t rely on a cheap, unbranded charger or leave it charging unattended
Make sure you buy your presents and your sale bargains from retailers you trust – remember, if that bargain looks too good to be true, then it probably is!
Remember……….Keep Safe out there!
With all of that in mind, We wish you have a Very Happy Christmas and a Very Prosperous New Year.
