    Trim Your Tree for Safety

    Fire danger increases during the holiday season because of tree lights and decorations on houses, as well as candles on centerpieces and other ornaments. This year, you may want to take an extra precaution and place a battery-operated smoke detector on or near your tree. It could give you that valuable early fire warning that will allow your family to exit your home safely. After Christmas you can mount the detector in another part of your house.—Diana Wilson, Wilsonville, Oregon
