Candle Safety: Consider Battery Operated Flameless Candles

Candle safety (candles with live flame)  in your home is serious business.  According to the U.S. Fire Administration,  there are an estimated 15,260 home candle fires each year.

“Consider using battery-operated or electric flameless candles and fragrance warmers, which can look, smell and feel like real candles – without the flame,” says the USFA.

In a report on Candle Fire Safety (Sources: NFPA, NFIRS) the USFA reports on Causes and Circumstances of Home Candle Fires, and provides Candle Safety Tips.

Some of the findings:

36% of home candle fires begin in a bedroom, and half of candle fire deaths occur between Midnight and 6:00 AM.  The groups at highest risk to die in a candle-related fire are young children and older adults, says the report.

The USFA report goes on to say, “More than half of all candle fires start when something that could burn, such as furniture, mattresses or bedding, curtains, or decorations is too close to the candle.”

20% of candle fires are caused by unattended or abandoned candles, and falling asleep is a contributing factor.

Modern technology – battery operated, flameless candles – lets you enjoy the effects of a live flame without the worry.  Flameless candles with LED’s flicker and glow just like the real thing, and even come scented and unscented to fit your mood and application.  All without the mess of melted wax and smoke filling the room.

Tea lights, votives, pillars, tapers… the choice is yours.  Try a battery operated, flameless candle – your pets and children will thank you!
