It’s the most wonderful time of the year! But is it the safest? Though the holidays will be celebrated a little differently this year, decorating, cooking, and gift giving will likely continue. It provides us with comfort and something to look forward to.

Though these holiday rituals may not seem risky or dangerous, they do require a bit of a safety check. Falls can happen when ladders are not used properly, fires often start due to candles and improperly used electrical lighting or other equipment, and family may have stomach cramps due to food poisoning.

Below are a few resources to help keep everyone safe and healthy this holiday season.
