The Reno Fire Department encourages residents to be safe while celebrating during the holiday season.
- Avoid putting a Christmas tree near any open flames, like candles or fireplaces, as they are incredibly flammable.
Make sure your heating equipment is in a suitable condition before the winter season officially sets in, so as to avoid causing a fire.
- Having friends and family over for the holidays can cause a greater risk of causing a fire, especially if alcohol is involved. Be cautious and celebrate responsibly.
- Reduce speeds on slick roads to avoid hazards.
