It’s that time of year again, when we start decorating for the big holidays. And the number one decoration is a Christmas Tree. Even schools get in on the action. But is your Christmas tree safe for a school?
In California, the State Fire Marshall governs Christmas Trees placed in public buildings under Title 19, Section 3.08. It states that the Christmas Tree must be flame-retardant or treated with a flame-retardant. So, how do you know? It will have the State Fire Marshall tag on the tree. If it doesn’t, then don’t purchase it for your school.
