Happy Holidays!

Collierville Fire & Rescue


  • Maintain Your Holiday Lights - Inspect holiday lights each year for frayed wires, bare spots, gaps in the insulation, broken or cracked sockets, and excessive kinking or wear before putting them up. Use only lighting listed by an approved testing laboratory.

  • Do Not Overload Electrical Outlets - Do not link more than three light strands, unless the directions indicate it is safe. Connect strings of lights to an extension cord before plugging the cord into the outlet. Make sure to periodically check the wires – they should not be warm to the touch. 

  • Do not leave holiday lights on unattended!



  • Use Only Non-flammable Decorations - All decorations should be non-flammable or flame-retardant and placed away from heat vents. If you are using a metallic or artificial tree, make sure it is flame retardant.

  • Don't Block Exits - Ensure that trees and other holiday decorations do not block an exit way. In the event of a fire, time is of the essence and a blocked entry/exit way puts you and your family at risk.

  • Never Put Wrapping Paper in the Fireplace - Wrapping paper in the fireplace can result in a very large fire, throwing off dangerous sparks and embers that may result in a chimney fire.



  • Avoid Using Lit Candles - If you do use lit candles, make sure they are in stable holders and place them where they cannot be easily knocked down. Never leave the house with candles burning.

  • Never Put Lit Candles on a Tree - Do not go near a Christmas tree with an open flame – candles, lighters or matches.
