HEALTHCARE FACILITY HOLIDAY DECORATING Decorate Rooms With A Holiday Flair For Fire Safety Inside Decorating - Holiday decorating is a special tradition. But many decorations also create fire hazards . Did you know that December and January are traditionally the months with the highest number of fires? Putting fire safety first assures that the holiday spirit lasts until the holidays pass. Prevent tragedy by following these tips for fire safe decorating. * Fire-retardant decorations are pref erred. Flame resistant material must not exceed 10% of the aggregate are of walls and ceilings. * Avoid combustible decorations concentrated in a si ngle area on a wall that will lead to rapid fire growth. * Crepe paper and pyroxylin plastic decorations must be documented fire retardant. * Natural cut tress shall not be permitted * Artificial Christmas trees must be effectively flame-retardant treated. * Place artificial trees away from heat source s such as heat vents, fire places, and sunny windows. * No extension cords. * Circuit breaker power strips are recomm ended for a safe electrical power source, Do not connect one power strip to another power strip. * No lit candles. * Buy lights that are UL listed, then plug them in for 15 minutes before decorating. Check for excessive heat or damaged wiring. * Check your lights for cracked or frayed wires and loose or broken plugs. * Avoid over load light strings. Do not connect more than 200 miniature lights or 50 large lights together. Small lights are safer because they produce less heat. * Turn off and unplug lights at night. Grasp the cord by the plug, never pull on the cord. * Do not block exits or fire pull stations with decorations or Christmas trees. * Do not hang decorations on light fixtures, smoke detectors, or sprinkler heads. * Decorations on doors should not prevent their func tion or cover the identifications as the means of egress. Outside Decorating - Remember to be fire safe outside as well as inside. A fire that starts close to a building can spread to the structure and threaten lives. * Do not use indoor lights for outdoor decorating. A label on the box will tell you if they are safe to use outside. * Limit the use of heavy duty extension cords. * Be sure extension and light cords do not create a tripping hazard. * Turn off and unplug lights at night. * Do not block the exit discharge with holiday decorations.
