Festive-Safety-Tips-

The holiday season is a time for joy and celebration, but it's also important to stay safe. That's why SecuriGroup is sharing daily safety tips on social media to help you enjoy the festivities with peace of mind.

Take a look at the first six tips we have already posted!

Tree Safety 
Happy December! As many of you will be putting up trees here are some points to remember:

✅ Secure your tree: Make sure your stand is stable to prevent tipping, especially if you have pets or young children.

✅ Hydration is Key: A well hydrated tree is less likely to become a fire-hazard.

✅ Check lights carefully: Before decorating double check that lights don't have frayed wires or other damage. Replace any faulty lights to reduce the risk of electrical issues. 


Christmas Night Out Safety

With several Christmas night outs happening across the UK here are some safety tips to

✅ Keep your phone charged.

✅ Stay with your group and don't walk home alone.

✅ Remember signals for help like the Ask Angela campaign.


Christmas Lights Precautions

Ensure your Christmas Lights shine bright without worries:


✅ Avoid overloading electrical outlets with festive lights and decorations to prevent fire hazards.

✅ Only use outdoor lights outside. Indoor lights may not be weather-resistant.

✅ Keep inspecting lights for any sign of damage and replace if needed.

Use these tips for a joyful and hazard-free festive period!


Stay Safe in the Cold Weather

As the weather drops let's be prepared to navigate driving conditions!


✅ Check weather warnings and make sure you know how to respond to each.

✅ Take an emergency kit with you. It's recommended to include a first aid kit, jump leads, torch, batteries, a power bank, map, blanket, and a reflective warning sign.

✅ It's also recommended to have an ice scraper, de-icer, screen wash, warm clothes and boots/waterproof shoes, socks, matches, high visibility vest, and non-perishable food/snacks. 


Home Safety

Festive Bliss: Guarding your home for a Happy Holiday Season!


✅Be careful what you post on social media. Refrain from sharing travel plans that show your home will be empty during the holidays. This can help prevent burglars targeting your home.

✅ Be cautious with decorations. Avoid overloading electrical outlets and keep flammable decorations away from heat sources.

✅ Use strategic lighting. Illuminating your home with timers and motion active lights will deter burglars. A well-lit property creates a sense of occupancy to enhance security.


Drive Safely

Navigate the festive cheer with caution and care – your safe journey is one of the best gifts you can give this festive season.


✅ Plan ahead: Check weather and traffic conditions, plan your route in advance and plan breaks for long journeys to stay alert and refreshed on your festive travels.

✅ Stay focused: Minimise distractions like phones, look out for unexpected situations and watch your speed.

✅ Maintain a safe distance: Keep a generous gap with vehicles in front to allow for sudden stops and avoid collisions.
