Delray Beach, FL (PRWEB) December 18, 2014
Shiner Law Group, in collaboration with Delray Beach Fire-Rescue, announces the release of a new video offering holiday fire safety tips.
Shiner Law Group and Delray Beach Fire-Rescue are reaching out to Delray Beach, Boca Raton, Deerfield Beach and the surrounding areas to remind residents that winter is peak season for home fires. While heating and cooking are the leading causes of winter home fires, holiday decorations, such as candles, lights and indoor Christmas trees, also increase the risk.
The goal of the new video is to raise awareness and offer people simple safety tips that can keep their homes and families safe throughout the holiday season:
- Keep Christmas trees away from heat and electrical sources, such as chimneys, heaters and electrical outlets.
- Dispose of trees when they become dry.
- Never leave a stove unattended when cooking.
- Turn the stove and oven off before leaving the house.
- Avoid burns that result from handling hot pans and dishes. Use potholders when removing items from both conventional and microwave ovens.
- If a fire does start, leave the house immediately and call 911 from outside the home.
“Shiner Law Group is excited to learn safety tips from Delray Beach Fire-Rescue,” said David Shiner of Shiner Law Group. “We share the goal of educating our community about fire safety.”
“The holidays are a special time of year, and we all need to do our part to prevent fires and keep our families safe,” said Kevin Saxton, Captain and Public Information Officer, Delray Beach Fire-Rescue. “This video serves as a great way to get the word out.”
