I think I have just come across what seems to be an "Ebenezer Scrooge" situation!
The residents in the flats where I live have all just received a note telling us that we are not allowed to have an artificial festive wreath hanging on our front door (Quote) "in order to minimise the fire risk over the festive period". However the same note tells us that some designated areas within building will be having Christmas decorations put up - These designated Areas no doubt mean the Residents Lounge and of course directly outside the manager's office.
Now my line of thinking is that these decorations (No doubt tinsel and streamers (The usual type of household Christmas decorations) that are going to be put up in these "designated areas" are also likely to be either just as flamable or would give off exactly the same toxic fumes in the event of a fire so it puzzles me as to what makes them less of a fire hazzard in these areas as opposed to an artificial wreath hanging on our door?
I'm all for safety but on the other hand I also enjoy celebrating Christmas with the usual decorations and all the trimmings but this seems to smell of some sort of a "double standards" situation!
Any thoughts gents?
