The company, which offers home and auto insurance, among other lines, notes that during the holidays, there are increased risks of fire at home because of lights and other decorations.

• Use lights that have been UL, CSA or ETL certified.

• Be sure to unplug all lights before leaving the house, and at night when you go to bed.
• When using outdoor lights, do not uses staples or nails to hang lights.

Ashley Insurance offers these safety tips for holiday driving:
• Keep your gas tank at least half full at all times.
• Make sure to clear all of the snow and ice off your car, even the roof.
• Before you take a trip, check the air pressure in the tires and make sure you have plenty of windshield washer fluid.
• Have an emergency kit in your car that includes jumper cables, a snow shovel, and an ice scraper.
• Never text and drive.
