“Use Candles with Care; When You Go Out, Blow Out!”
Home candle fires have risen as most other causes of home fires have declined, according to the non-profit National First Protection Association (NFPA). Here are a few tips to help use candles safely:
- Never leave a burning candle unattended. Carefully put out candles when you leave the room or go to bed.
- Keep candles at least one foot away from anything that can burn, including curtains, blinds, wallpaper and clothing.
- Never leave a child unattended in a room with a burning candle.
- Use candle holders that are sturdy, won’t tip over easily, are made from a material that can’t burn, and are large enough to collect dripping wax.
- Keep candle wicks trimmed to one-quarter inch.
- Store matches and lighters up high and out of children’s sight and reach, preferably in a locked cabinet.
Because candle fires spread so quickly, we are urged to ensure that smoke alarms are installed on every level of the home. Residents should test smoke alarms once a month, replace alarm batteries twice a year, and replace smoke alarms after 10 years. Each member of the household needs to know the first escape plan, and all should practice it twice a year.
