NEW HAVEN -- 'Tis the season for Christmas trees and the New Haven fire department wants to help with the safety aspect of having one.

The New Haven Fire Department held a Christmas Tree fire safety demonstration Thursday morning.

The event was held at New Haven Regional Fire School on Ella T Grasso Boulevard.

Here are some tips to keep you and your family safe during the holidays:

  • that trees should be three feet away from a heat source,
  • water real trees daily to prevent dryness, check light strands for wear and tear
  • turn off the tree when you are asleep or not home.
