DOH-COLLIER HIGHLIGHTS HOLIDAY SAFETY TIPS FOR A SAFE AND HEALTHY SEASON

Full Story

Fires, falls, and food safety should be a priority year-round, but even more so during the busy holiday season. In fact, according to the U.S. Fire Administration (USFA FEMA), the top three days of the year for home candle fires are Christmas, New Year’s Eve, and New Year’s Day; and more than 1/3 of home decoration fires are caused by a candle. When decorating for the holiday season it is important to make safety a priority.

Every year, December 1 marks the global observance of World AIDS Day. This year’s national World AIDS Day theme is Ending the HIV Epidemic: Community by Community.

We hope that you’ll join us in our efforts to raise awareness for HIV and AIDS on this World AIDS Day and every day.
