Learn how to decorate, heat, and cook in your home safely this winter.

The Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) is providing safety tips and resources to prevent household fires and accidents caused by improper cooking, heating, and holiday decorating practices. Cooking and heating are the leading cause of home fires and fire injuries, while 25% of winter fires are caused by decorations. It is imperative to learn how to avoid preventable accidents and celebrate safely during the season.

“Statistics show that incidents of home fires and electrical accidents increase during winter months,” said ESFI President Brett Brenner. R
