Now that Thanksgiving is over, communities are preparing for the Winter holiday season. Over the last few months, we have shown you just how fast fire can spread in your home leaving you with little time to escape. If your Christmas tree is to catch fire, that time may become even less.

Share this video with friends and family for a few holiday fire safety tips.

Aside from the seasonal reminders, make sure to:

- have working smoke alarms inside and outside every sleeping area
and on every level of the home

- practice your fire escape plans with holiday guests

- and always #CloseBeforeYouDoze.

DON't THROW WATER ON GREASE FIRE: "Sarnia Fire Rescue Services wanted to demonstrate why you should NEVER throw water on a grease fire! Always “look while you cook” but if your cooking oil ever catches on fire safely put on a tight-fitting lid or cookie sheet, turn off the heat and let it completely cool." - Sarnia Fire Rescue https://bit.ly/2RS4cUt
