Hanukkah Candle Safety Tips

11/15/2017 (Permalink)

  • “Never leave a lit menorah unattended.
  • Place menorahs on tall, sturdy surfaces like kitchen counters and dining room tables, out of reach from pets and small children.
  • Never light a menorah near curtains, plants, tablecloths or decorations.
  • Sit the menorah atop a nonflammable surface (we always used aluminum foil) to catch wax drippings or a falling candle.
  • Secure candles in their holders by slightly melting the wax at the bottom of each candle before placing in the menorah.
  • Only use electric menorahs on windowsills.
  • When plugging in an electric menorah, keep infants and toddlers away from the socket (and be sure to check for frayed wires before using).
  • Keep matches and stick lighters away from young children.
  • Test thesmoke detectorsin your house and have a fire extinguisher nearby in case the unthinkable happens.”
