Topanga Tims Safety Tip: Holiday Safety
December 13, 2012 -
Greenleaf Gail was dragging her feet about putting up her holiday decorations so was surfing the net and came across an informative video about holiday safety. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D0y1V9bTaTk ) It advised using only electrical cords that contain the UL symbol, meaning that they are tested for safety by independent labs. (A green UL indicates indoor use and red means outdoor.) No more than three strings of 50 holiday lights should be strung together without employing another outlet. Electric candles are a good alternative to the real thing. All good tips for a safer holiday.
