ceiling fan ground wire?

Hello,

I am installing a new ceiling fan/light fixture and when I pulled out the old fan/light there was not ground, just black and white. I'm not sure how to add a ground, will it be extremely dangerous if I don't ground it? The fixture is also controled by a wall switch.

Thanks in advance

Bill

No. Just connect the fan ground wire to the metal box in the ceiling.
