Christmas tree fires can get out of hand quickly. Our local team in Crestview, DeFuniak Springs, and Chipley wants everyone to have a safe and fire-damage-free Christmas holiday in DeFuniak Springs. Here are some Christmas tree safety tips from the National Fire Protection Association: 


  • Choose a tree with fresh, green needles that do not fall off when touched  


  • Before placing the tree in the stand, cut 2 inches from the base of the trunk 
  • Make sure the tree is at least three feet away from any heat source, like fireplaces, radiators, candles, heat vents, or lights 
  • Make sure the tree is not blocking an exit 
  • Add water to the tree stand. Be sure to add water daily.  


  • Use lights that are listed by a qualified testing laboratory. Some lights are only for indoor or outdoor use. 
  • Replace any string of lights with worn or broken cords or loose bulb connections. Read the manufacturer’s instructions for the number of light strands to connect. 
  • Never use lit candles to decorate the tree 
  • Always turn off Christmas tree lights before leaving home or going to bed
