Holiday Tips To Keep Your Children Safe!

“Deaths relating to fires caused by children at play are surprisingly high during the winter months. In December the number is double its year-round average,” according to ESFi. For a child, there is absolutely nothing better than getting your favorite toy to play with during the holidays, and there’s no better feeling for a parent than seeing your child happy. However, there are a few safety tips you must follow in order to ensure that your children remain safe this holiday season.

To eliminate the risk of burns and electrical shock:
  • Do not give children under the age of 10 a toy that has to be plugged in, buy battery operated toys instead
  • Make sure each toy has a fire safety label from an independent testing laboratory
  • Be cognizant when placing candles or holiday lights around your home. Make sure to place them out of reach of your small children

Follow these tips to enjoy a happy and safe holiday with your family. If you notice any electrical problems with a toy or around your house, don’t hesitate to give GEN3 Electric a call.
