Never leave a burning candle unattended. Extinguish all candles when you leave the room or go to bed.

Place candle holders on a sturdy, uncluttered surface away from edges and any place where they could be knocked over by kids or pets.

Don’t place lit candles in windows or near doorways where drafts could bring combustibles in contact with the flame.

Avoid using candles during a power outage. Have flashlights and battery-powered lighting on hand for emergency lighting.

Never leave a child unattended in a room with a burning candle. Don’t allow kids or teens to burn candles in their bedrooms.
