— TO MY FRIENDS —
Let’s pay close attention to fire prevention!
Let’s keep flammable materials tidy and in a safe place
and double check that space heaters, cooking stoves, etc.
are turned off (before we go out or go to bed).
Let’s try to spend each day, free from any kind of accident,
during this hectic year-end/holiday season.
