Fraser Valley – Tom De Sourcy with the Hope Fire Department has put out the warning about real Christmas Trees. Originally this was produced in the US for Fire Departments, but it shows how a dried out Christmas Tree and turn your home into a fire trap within seconds. (Monterey County Fire Investigator’s Association, with association from NIST, provides Christmas tree safety tips to protect you and your family. A rapidly burning Christmas tree is shown in a living room façade as an example of how dangerous a dry Christmas tree can be if it catches fire.)
Bottom line – DON’T let your tree dry out. When in doubt for information, contact your local fire department.
