Muppet Holiday Safety PSA and -Rafflecopter- Giveaway -- ENDED

Kermit, Beaker and Bunsen discovered that the main cause of holiday fires involve decorations (56%) and the first item ignited because of this are Christmas trees (21%).

That’s why Dr. Dr. Honeydew Bunsen, his assistant Beaker and Kermit the Frog created a short video at the UL Labs encouraging families to “Commit A Minute” to safety.  You can find the video here.
Here are some additional statistics and top safety tips you should know to ensure a safe and happy holiday season:
·        Consider LEDS - A candle can reach 1,000 degrees so always stay “three feet from the heat”
·        Never leave candles unattended- Keep a fire extinguisher nearby in case of unexpected candle/oven flames
·        *Water Your Tree - Trees that have dried out over several weeks burn faster than fresher, well-watered. *Here’s a video of a side-by-side tree burn.
·        Ensure lights bare the UL Mark - Lights intended for indoor-only use bear green holographic UL Marks, whereas lights intended for indoor and                 outdoor use bear red holographic UL Marks

To help spread the word about Holiday Safety, Underwriters Laboratories has generously offered a Muppet Movie Poster and a pair of Fandango tickets to their upcoming movie as giveaway prizes to one of my lucky readers. This giveaway ends on Dec 1st, 2011.

I learned cords should not be run under carpets or tacked-up with metal nails or staples
