This is yet another example of why you should take a closer look at fire safety at your church!
Arround this time of year many churches, as well as, church members start decorating for the holidays. A common tradition is to place a chismas tree in your home or church facility. The below video illustrates how fast a christmas tree can burn. The video is a result of a test from the National Instutue of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, MD. Make sure that you and your family have a plan in place in the event your home caught on fire. Knowing that there is an increased risk of fire during the holidays churches should consider reminding their congregations of what plans you have in place in the event of a fire emergency.
