In keeping with the overall theme of sharing education and tactical training, here is a list of our networking partners.

With the holidays fast approaching and the increased usage of seasonal decorations, it is important to focus on candle fire safety and prevention. Because the majority of candle fires result from human error and negligence, candle fires and their associated casualties are preventable.

* If possible, avoid using lighted candles.
* If you must use candles, ensure that they are placed in sturdy holders.
* Keep candles away from children and pets.
* Be sure to extinguish candles after each use.
* Never leave burning candles unattended.


By following a few candle fire safety tips, everyone can enjoy a safe and happy holiday season.
Causes and Circumstances of Home Candle Fires

* On average, one home candle fire is reported every 34 minutes.
* More than half of all candle fires start when something that could burn, such as furniture, mattresses or bedding, curtains, or decorations is too close to the candle.
* In one-fifth (20%) of candle fires, the candles are unattended or abandoned.
* Almost two-fifths of home candle fires begin in the bedroom.
* Falling asleep is a factor in 12% of home candle fires and 26% of the associated deaths.
* December is the peak time of year for home candle fires. In December, 13% of home candle fires begin with decorations compared to 4% the rest of the year.
* One-half of home candle fire deaths occur between Midnight and 6 am.
* Young children and older adults have the highest death risk from candle fires.
* The risk of fatal candle fires appears higher when candles are used for light.

Candle Safety Tips
Put candles in sturdy metal, glass, or ceramic holders.

* Avoid using lighted candles.
* If you do use candles, ensure they are in sturdy metal, glass or ceramic holders and placed where they cannot be easily knocked down.
* Keep candles out of the reach of children and pets.
* Set a good example by using matches, lighters, and fire carefully.
* Children should never be allowed to play with matches, lighters, or candles.
* Never put candles on a Christmas tree.
* Extinguish candles after use and before going to bed.
* And NEVER leave burning candles unattended!

Remember! Candle fires are PREVENTABLE!

In the event of a fire, remember time is the biggest enemy and every second counts!

Escape first, and then call for help. Develop a home fire escape plan and practice it frequently with your family. Designate a meeting place outside. Make sure everyone in the family knows two ways to escape from every room.

Never stand up in a fire, always crawl low under the smoke, and try to keep your mouth covered. Never return to a burning building for any reason: it may cost you your life.

Finally, having a working smoke alarm dramatically increases your chances of surviving a fire.
