As Calgarians celebrate the holiday season by putting up Christmas trees and trimming them with lights, the Calgary Fire Department would like to remind residents to continue to be diligent about fire safety. Even at this time of celebration, there are still inherent risks.
Christmas trees are really festive and a popular holiday tradition this time of year, said Carol Henke, Calgary Fire Department Public Information Officer. if they dry out or are left close to a heat source, such as a heater, fireplace or candles, they can be a fire hazard. Connect no more than three strands of mini light sets or 50 bulbs for screw in bulb sets in one outlet. After the holidays, it is important to properly dispose of Christmas trees as they can be a dangerous fire hazard once they have dried up and lost their needles. The City of Calgary Christmas Tree Recycling Program offers pickup and temporary drop off locations.
