As the stockings are hung by the chimney with care and the tree is well trimmed, one thing some may not readily consider is safeguarding against fire.

Coming up this week on The Richard Piet Show, we'll review the things you need to know about fire safety during the holidays. Thursday from 8:08-8:30 a.m., Michael McLeieer with ESCAPE will offer the reminders; good information in a checklist style so you can assess the fire safety in your home.

Hear The Richard Piet Show weekday mornings from 5:30-9 on WBCK.
