The Federal Emergency Management Agency's Ready Campaign recently offered safety tips for the holiday season, and this year it chose to deliver them via a poem. (And also with a holiday and travel safety toolkit.) Here it is:

The clock is ticking and we're down to the wire
Everything feels like it's just caught on fire.
But, let's be certain that isn't true
Keep your real trees watered and your plants too.

The gift list keeps growing, everyone gets a toy
Tablets, e-readers and chargers, oh boy!
There are plenty of deals out here and out there,
If you're buying online, be secure and aware.

Plenty of people with candles alight
Might want to keep them from becoming a fright.
The way to do that is to keep them away
From the things that could catch on fire some way.

The big day is near, you plan to travel some place.
But a big winter storm rears its big ugly face.
It might change your plans and keep you at home
But that's better than going out in a snow dome.

The best thing to do is sit down to a feast,
Mashed potatoes and stuffing and a big old roast beast at least.
Keep an eye on them as they sit and they stew.
That way your dinner will be sure to woo.

When the day is over, the kids all in bed.
It's time to settle into the comfy bedspread.
Turn out the holiday lights, their job is all done.
We hope your holiday's a big happy one.

As for the holiday and travel safety toolkit, here are its tips:

  • Stay off the road during and after a winter storm.
  • Keep candles away from flammable materials.
  • eep an eye on food when cooking.
  • Turn off holiday lights at night.
  • Keep your tree watered, don't let your holiday tree dry out.
  • Shop securely online over the holidays.
