Company takes danger out of hanging holiday lights

A Fairfield business is trying to help minimize decoration hanging accidents this holiday season by offering its expertise and services.

Roy Hemond and his crew will go to any height to help hang lights or other decorations. Hemond works for Mister Handyman, a business that professionally installs holiday lights.

Hemond says his job is to make people happy and he says he enjoys seeing the smiles of the families he decorates for.

Mister Handyman, owned by Skip Wyatt, started holiday decorating to keep busy during the slow winter months. It charges anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars for a job.

The government says thousands hurt themselves each year by hanging lights.
