The Springfield Fire Department is offering advice for safe decorating this holiday season. 

Some tips:  Choose decorations that are flame resistant or flame retardant; turn off all lights before going to bed or leaving home; don’t overload electrical outlets; water fresh Christmas trees daily; keep at least three feet of clear space between heat sources and decorations; never leave a burning candle unattended and test smoke alarms to make sure they’re working.
