Holiday Decorating Guidelines

It’s been great to see so many holiday decorations going up around Gulf Gate. We love it when our residents get into the joy of the season and of course you are welcome to decorate your homes and put up lights on your lanais, but please do so with caution.

When decorating, use battery operated candles to light your home. There are many deaths, injuries, and fires due to fires caused by candles each year. If you choose to light candles, always make sure they are in sight and that you put them out whenever you leave the room. Battery operated candles not only look real, they look better than candles. They have timers and do not melt! You will even catch yourself trying to blow them out!

Make sure that your indoor or outdoor lights have been tested for safety and are not broken, cracked, frayed, or have any loose connections. No more than 3 light strains to an extension cord and like candles; never leave the house or go to bed with them on.

When purchasing an artificial tree please make sure it is a “fire resistant” tree. For fire safety, real trees and wreaths are not allowed in your apartment. When decorating your tree only use non-combustible or flame resistant materials and NEVER use lighted candles.

If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact the office.
