Are you getting ready to arrange Holiday decorations for your home?

Hi, I’m Clyde Ross from the Franklin County Emergency Management Agency with some suggestions for safe holiday decorating this December.

  1. Before using holiday lights, inspect them for frayed or broken wires and broken bulbs. Make sure the lights have an UL label indicating that they have been tested and approved.
  2. Don’t overload extension cords. Christmas tree lights should be plugged into a wall outlet.
  3. Always turn off holiday lights when you leave the house or go to bed.
  4. Don’t use open flames or candles near flammable materials.
  5. Candles should always be place in or on non-flammable holders. Candles should never be left unattended and should be extinguished before you leave the house or go to bed. Some scented candles may affect your health.

Everyone at the Franklin County Emergency Management Agency wishes you a safe and happy holiday!

Are you ready for Winter? It’s hard to think about “SNOW” right now, with the wonderful warm weather we have. However, it is extremely important for your vehicle to have good tires. Check the air pressure, and make sure that they are ready for what is yet to come. Do not wait until the snow is here to get your vehicle ready.

Do you have a Winter Car Kit? Do you at least have necessary supplies to keep you safe & warm in an emergency? We never PLAN on being in these situations, but with the climate changes, these items are necessary for safety and survival.
