Tips to Keep Your Home Safe for All

February 2018
Spring Forward with Safety!
They keep telling us that spring is coming and a sure sign for us is when we get to set the clocks ahead.  Daylight Saving Time begins every year on the second Sunday in March. Clocks are set forward one hour, except in Hawaii and most of Arizona. Daylight saving time begins Sunday, March 11, 2018.

It's also a good time to review the following spring safety checklist:

Smoke AlarmsThree out of every five home fire deaths  result from fires in homes with no smoke alarms, according to the National Fire Protection Association. Test your smoke alarms every month and  replace the battery at least once a year . If the alarm makes a "chirping" sound, replace it immediately.

Carbon Monoxide DetectorsAnything that burns fuel can potentially become a source of carbon monoxide, an invisible, odorless gas that can kill. CO alarms should be installed in a central location outside each bedroom and on every level of the home.

This is also a good time to check your home and auto First Aid Kits.  We will be exhibiting at many great events coming up.  Stop by and say hello.  We would love to meet you. 

We are here to help!
