Safety Tips for the Winter

As the weather gets cooler and it gets darker earlier there are some very wise safety strategies that can be employed to ensure your businesses and loved ones are safe.

Change the batteries in your Fire Alarms and Carbon Monoxide detectors
As daylight savings time comes twice a year- this is the perfect habit to develop for safe house and business keeping. Just remember: when you change your clocks, change your batteries.

Prepare a disaster supply kit
Another great thing to do twice yearly: As the hours jump back and forth make sure your employees and family are protected from unforeseen tragedies. If you’ve already created an emergency kit, now is a great time to double check all the supplies in it to make sure nothing’s forgotten or expired. Great things to remember: water, food, toothbrushes, flashlights, batteries (test & replace them if necessary), and blankets.

Don’t forget a “winter emergency kit” for your car!
A cold winter is coming. Make sure you’re prepared for any circumstance by packing the essentials along with some cold weather clothes just in case.

Stay safe when you turn your heaters on
Make sure all flammable materials are a safe distance from electric and hot water heaters.

Clean or change your furnace filter

It’s always wise and even recommended that you have your heating system inspected or serviced once yearly to ensure safety, longer life and better performance.

Discard all expired meds
Some common, over the counter medications can cause serious problems due to change through aging. May sure to check your medicine cabinet for any expired meds and keep ALL medication safely stored from children and household pets.

Slow! Children at play!
As it gets darker earlier make sure you’re keeping an eye out for the neighborhood kids walking home or playing the streets.
Parents: suggest that your child wears lighter/ more reflective clothing to increase visibility and ensure safety.
