  • read and follow the manufacturers' instructions
  • check your Christmas lights are not damaged or broken before use and look out for loose wires
  • use only replacement bulbs of the same type and rating as those originally supplied with the lights
  • ensure all outdoor lights are connected via a 30mA RCD protected socket
  • replace failed lamps immediately to prevent overheating
  • ensure plugs and transformers are plugged in indoors, even if the lighting is suitable for outdoor use
