Candles are a fire hazard – use flameless candles to avoid a potential disaster.

Firefighter occupational cancer is the leading cause of line-of-duty deaths in the fire service. In 2019, more than 75% of the names of firefighters added to the IAFF Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial Wall of Honor in Colorado Springs, Colorado, were of members who died from occupational cancer.

Christmas tree fires are some of the deadliest home fires that firefighters and paramedics respond to. If you bring a live tree into your house, make sure to water it every day and do not leave the lights on when you are out of the house or asleep. A combination of live trees, fires, lights and candles can quickly turn into a recipe for disaster. #IAFFSafetyTips
