Lighting up Duluth for the Chirstmas Season

Safety First!

IMG_1935Here is a glimpse of Jason wearing his safety-harness swag.  Installing Christmas lights can be a bit dangerous when you don’t have the right equipment  According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) every year, hospital emergency rooms treat about 12,500 people for injuries, such as falls, cuts and shocks, related to holiday lights, decorations and Christmas trees.

Here are some tips from the CPSC website for keeping your Christmas safe:

– Indoors or outside, use only lights that have been tested for safety. Identify these by the label from an independent testing laboratory.

-Check each set of lights, new or old, for broken or cracked sockets, frayed or bare wires, or loose connections. Discard damaged sets or repair them before using.

-Fasten outdoor lights securely to trees, house, walls or other firm support to protect from wind damage.

-Use no more than three standard-size sets of lights per single extension cord.

-Turn off all lights on trees and other decorations when you go to bed or leave the house. Lights could short and start a fire.

-Never use electric lights on a metallic tree. The tree can become charged with electricity from faulty lights, and any person touching a branch could be electrocuted! To avoid this danger, use colored spotlights above or beside a tree, never fastened onto it!
