Why You Should Water Your Christmas Tree

Christmas trees account for hundreds of fires each year. Typically, shorts in electrical lights or open flames from candles, lighters, or matches start tree fires. Well-watered trees are not a problem. However, a dry and neglected tree can be. Needles that fall off or come off easily in your hand are signs that the tree is drying out and becoming a hazard. Water and check your tree every day. Also, make sure that you have working smoke alarms and your exits aren't blocked.

Daylight Saving Time ends on Sunday, November 7, at 2 a.m. As we set our clocks back, take the time to also change the batteries in your smoke alarms.
