PETERBOROUGH FIRE ISSUES TIPS TO HAVE A SAFE CHRISTMAS SEASON 12/5/2017 6:19:09 AM
It was a year ago that a Toronto family of four died, while staying at their Stoney Lake cottage over the Christmas holidays.
This year, Peterborough Fire Services wants to make sure that nobody experiences tragedy because of fire.
Public Educator Amanda Nicholls says one of the first things to remember is how you're running electricity to the Christmas lights in your home.
She says if you're decorating a real tree this year, be sure to water it regularly, be mindful of what's cooking in the kitchen at all times and make sure smoke detectors are in working order.
