How kids and teens can stay safe during the holidays
- No playing with matches or lighters! Enjoy candles and fires from a safe distance.
- Be careful with ornaments or decorations that are glass or have sharp edges. If one breaks, don’t move! Avoid stepping on broken glass. Let your parent know so they can clean it up safely.
- If you are a teen who drives, drive slowly during the holiday season. Watch for traffic and weather hazards.
- Know where emergency numbers are and how to use them. If something feels off or there’s an emergency, let an adult know right away.
