Hurst-Weiss Insurance Holiday Safety Tips: Shopping  · Do not leave valuable items in your car where they can be seen. Place everything in the trunk out of eyesight before leaving for your next destination. · Park in well lit, busy areas and always lock your doors (no matter how long you will be). · Keep cash in your front pocket and do not wear expensive jewelry when shopping. · Avoid carrying a lot of cash. Use a check or credit card when possible. · Don’t use hide-a way keys, thieves know the best places to look for them. · If something is stolen out of your car, do not touch anything and call police. Trees  · When buying an artificial tree, make sure it is marked with a “fire resistant” label. · If you buy a live tree, check to make sure it is fresh. Look for a green tree with needles that are hard to pull away from its branches and when bent between your fingers, the needles do not break. The butt of a fresh tree truck is sticky with resin and when tapped on the ground, the tree should not lose many needles. · Cut a few inches off the trunk to expose new wood. This will help the tree better absorb water and keep it from drying out and becoming a fire hazard. · Do not set up trees by fireplaces, radiators or other heating systems. Put trees out of the way of traffic and do not block doorways – Keep in mind all household members/visitors, small pets & children · Be sure to keep the tree stand filled with water. Check it often. Lights & Decorations  · Inspect all lights each year before hanging. Check for frayed wires, bare spots, gaps in insulation, broken or cracked sockets and excessive wear and tear. · Do not overload your electrical outlets. Check the wires periodically, they should never be warm to the touch. · Plug all outdoor lights into a grounded circuit to avoid shock and only use lights outdoors that are certified for outdoor use. · Never put wrapping paper in a fireplace. This can result in a large fire that throws off dangerous sparks and can cause a chimney fire. · In homes with small children & pets, take special care to avoid decorations that are sharp & breakable. Toys · Buy age appropriate toys. Children under age three can choke on small parts contained in toys or games. Government regulations specify that toys for children under age three cannot have parts less than 1 1/4 inches in diameter and 2 1/4 inches long. · Read instructions carefully before allowing your child to play with any toy. · Be cautious of pull toys with strings that are more than 12 inches in length. They could be a strangulation hazard for babies. · To prevent both burns and electrical shocks, don’t give young children (under age ten) a toy that must be plugged into an electrical outlet. Instead, buy toys that are battery- operated. · Select toys to suit the age, abilities, skills and interest level of the intended child. Toys too advanced may pose safety hazards for younger children.
