Prevent Decorating Mishaps: Be Careful


When Climbing Ladders to Put Up Lights One of the smartest things you can do this holiday season as you


decorate your house for Christmas is ask someone to hold onto the ladder for you while you climb it. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates more than 5,000 people wind up in hospital emergency rooms every November and December after they fall off of ladders while they’re hanging lights and other decorations. Another 10,000 have other decorating-related accidents. Keep your holidays hazard-free this year: Let someone else do the


decorating. If you’re not comfortable climbing a ladder or walking on your


roof—and few people are—hire someone who is. Roofers, landscapers and other professional contractors with small businesses don’t have a lot of work to do around the holidays, so they might give you a deal. It only takes a couple of hours for someone like that to decorate the outside of a house, so it won’t cost you nearly as much as an emer- gency-room bill will. If you must do it yourself, secure your ladder on even ground or use leg levelers. Do the work during daylight. And don’t even think of climbing on the roof if you’ve been imbibing in any holiday spirits.
