• Fireplaces and Christmas Trees Don't Mix...
    For the perfect holiday home scene, fireplaces and Christmas trees belong together – but not too close! Every holiday season, Christmas trees are the culprit of hundreds of fires, resulting in property damage, injuries and even deaths. Keep everyone safe this year by following these simply safety tips:

    • • When choosing a spot for your tree, make sure there is a good amount of space between it and your fireplace or stove. It really doesn’t matter if your unit burns wood, pellets or gas – it makes fire so keep the tree a safe distance away.

    • • When purchasing an artificial tree, make sure it has a “Fire Resistant” label. All trees will burn if exposed to flames, but trees that are manufactured in this manner will resist fire and extinguish faster than those that are not.

    • • If you have a live tree, be sure it has water at all times. The heat in our homes dries live trees out fast. Dry trees are fire hazards. By keeping the water reservoir full at all times, you know you’re doing everything possible to keep your tree hydrated.

    • • Don’t ever burn wrapping paper or cardboard boxes in your fireplace or stove. When ignited they can easily escalate out of control and cause a flash fire.

    From all of us at Harman, have a safe and happy holiday!
