Avoiding a Hazardous Holiday

Holiday decorations can be hazardous to your health. The CDC is warning families that thousands of people are injured every year while putting up Christmas decorations. Two or three people are treated in emergency rooms across the country every hour due to decorating injuries; men, more often than women.

So, this reminder from the CDC: If you're still climbing to complete the holiday look, use ladders safely and be sure to use ladders and step stools, rather than furniture or large objects to reach up high.
