The campaign revolves around 5 easy-to-remember tips:
NAFRA and Rebuilding Together have developed the above infographic with tips that individuals can share with friends and neighbors, and even hang up in their apartments or buildings. Throughout the month, @AmChemistry and @RebldgTogthr will be tweeting tips with the hashtag #CelebrateSafely.
We wish families a happy and fire-safe holiday season.
