Holiday Safety Tips and Tricks

Celebrating 75 years of service

The holidays are a time for decorating the home, gift giving, and spending time with loved ones! The holidays are also a time when theft, scamming, and accidents are on the rise. PFCU wants to help you stay safe this season by offering some tips to keep in mind whether you are out shopping for gifts or decorating your beautiful home! 

Holiday Shopping Safety 

  • When going to the store always park in well-lit areas
  • Only bring the credit cards you plan to use
  • Don’t leave purchased gifts in plain view inside your car
  • Only make online purchases from secure websites
  • Check your transaction history regularly to make sure there is no suspicious activity

Decorating Safety 

  • Never use furniture as a ladder
  • Avoid electrical fires by purchasing lights from reputable retailers
  • Inspect both indoor and outdoor lights for broken sockets, frayed wires, and loose connections
  • Do not overload outlets with too many electrical devices - this could cause a fire
  • Be sure you have working smoke detectors in your home
