“Commit A Minute” to Holiday Safety with The Muppets & Fandango Ticket #Giveaway



Kermit, Beaker and Bunsen discovered that the main cause of holiday fires involve decorations (56%) and the first item ignited because of this are Christmas trees (21%).

That’s why Dr. Dr. Honeydew Bunsen, his assistant Beaker and Kermit the Frog created a short video at the UL Labs encouraging families to “Commit A Minute” to safety. You can find the videos here.

Here are some additional statistics and top safety tips you should know to ensure a safe and happy holiday season:

  • Consider LEDS – A candle can reach 1,000 degrees so always stay “three feet from the heat”
  • Never leave candles unattended – Keep a fire extinguisher nearby in case of unexpected candle/oven flames
  • *Water Your Tree – Trees that have dried out over several weeks burn faster than fresher, well-watered. *Here’s a video of a side-by-side tree burn.
  • Ensure lights bare the UL Mark – Lights intended for indoor-only use bear green holographic UL Marks, whereas lights intended for indoor and outdoor use bear red holographic UL Marks
