FLOWER MOUND, TX (KLTV) - For some, home safety and holidays don't always go hand-in-hand. But one fire department is hoping to change that - with a little help from Elf on a Shelf.

The Flower Mound Fire Department created a fire safety video with a life-sized "elf" to remind people to use caution during the holidays. Tips covered in the video include how to properly use extension cords and reminders to extinguish candles at night.

"The holidays can bring joy and cheer, but they also bring a risk of fire-related emergencies," the department said in a Facebook post.

FMFD posted the video to its Facebook page in December 2015 - but with Christmas fast-approaching, the video has begun circulating again on social media as other departments use it as a warning.

Check out the video below and have a safe holiday.
