Proper Use of Candles During a Power Outage PSA (:30)
This is an important message from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Home fires are a threat after a natural disaster and fire trucks may have trouble getting to your home. If the power is out, use flashlights or other battery-powered lights if possible, instead of candles. If you must use them, place candles in safe holders away from anything that could catch fire. Never leave a burning candle unattended.
