And They Wish It Without ire! Christmas Safety Suggestions (1) When you select your Christmas tree this year, choose a freshly-cut tree, with' firmly-attached needles. (2) Keep the tree outdoors until just before Christmas. It v/ill stay fresher in tho cold air, and once you have it up, it will stay green longer. And keep it standing in a pail of water. (3) When putting up the tree, set it in the coolest part of the room away from radiators, heaters, and the fireplace. This will not only reduce the possibility of fire, but will keep the tree from drying out. (4) It is a good plan to use a iree holder which has a little bucket of water in which the trunk can rest during the holidays. A tree usually "drinks" more water than you realize, so keep water container filled at all times. (5) Fireproof Christmas tree decorations are the best. Use decorations made of either glass, metal, or a fire- resistant material. (6) Set up electric trains away from the tree. A spark from the train could set the tree on fire. (7) Always use electric lights on the tree — never candles. Lighting sets should be checked before being placed on the tree, and those with frayed wiring should be discarded. When buyinq new sets, look for the tag or Inbel showing listing by Underwriters' Laboratories, Inc. A switch some distance from the tree should be provided for turning the free lights on and off. (8) On Christmas morning, fold and put away any gift wrapping you intend to keep. Other gift wrappings should bo gathered up and thrown away promptly after presents are opened. (9) Christmas tree lights should be turned off when the family is away from home. (10) Inspect the Christmas iree from time to time to see how dry it is. If needles near the lights have started to turn brown, change the position of the lights, (11) When the needles start falling, take the tree down and discard it outdoors. (12) Even if the tree remains fresh, make plans now to dismantle it the day after New Years', and restore the room to its normal setting. To Report A Fire—Phone CY 4-2434 Algona Fire Dept.
