Holiday Decorations

Live Christmas trees or wreaths – State fire codes do not permit live Christmas trees or wreaths. They are fire hazards.

Lights – Lights must be UL approved. Extension cords may be used temporarily, but they must be UL approved.

Holiday decorations may be put up as long as no items are attached in any way to building walls, or any building surface using nails, tacks, tape, tacky putty, glue, or any other type of adhesives. Decorations may be hung or displayed on modular furniture walls or systems that belong to the agency.

Fire & Safety Codes – The decorations must not violate Fire and Safety Codes or NEC (National Electrical Codes) which pertain to overloading electrical systems, nor should they obstruct passageways.
