In the month of December, we celebrate the Christmas season which often includes a Christmas tree inside the house. Christmas tree fires can be devastating and can rapidly consume your home. If you have a live tree, make sure that it has water every day, and ensure that any lights you use are checked for breaks or exposed wires. If you have any concerns about the integrity of your Christmas lights, remove them from your tree and dispose of them.

The Fire Department of Westfield wishes you a very happy New Year!
