This holiday season, Flat Stanley and I are here,

To share safety tips as the fun draws near!

We love holiday parties, we’re the first to agree,

That there’s nothing like time with friends and family,

So remember these facts on how to have a safe time,

And join us in sharing this holiday rhyme.

 

Remind your parents as they make food each night,

To keep what they’re cooking in their sight,

Because being safe in the kitchen is always polite,

And the last thing you want is for your food to ignite!

 Bowie, Md., December 11, 2013 -- Flat Stella reminds everyone to stay in the kitchen while cooking to help reduce fire. Bowie, Md., December 11, 2013 -- Flat Stella reminds everyone to stay in the kitchen while cooking to help reduce fire.

Only keep candles lit if someone is in the room,

Otherwise they could fall and cause a fire, it is safe to assume.

Better yet you can use electric lights instead!

They come in all colors, from blue to yellow to red!

If your family likes to have a Christmas tree,

Make sure you water it frequently,

Otherwise it could dry out easily,

And set fire accidentally!

 

Your family may like to use plug in heaters this season,

Just make sure not to overload power outlets, and for good reason:

It could blow out a circuit or cause fires, and we ain’t teasin!
