Seasonal Safety Tips

While we anticipate the fun and enjoyment each of the four seasons can bring, we also need to be aware of possible hazards and take precautions to keep our family safe all year round.

Summer brings fun in the sun and water sports, but we need to be cautious when using our grills and watchful of small children around swimming pools. In the winter, if we use space heaters to keep a room toasty and warm, care needs to be taken on they are used so not to start a fire.

Outdoor fire safety
Dry weather and wind combined are the ingredients for potential brush fires. These conditions, while associated with summer, can also occur in spring and fall. Be sure to douse all campfires and BBQs fires so no remaining embers exist. Consider these suggestions to protect yourself, your family and your property from falling victim to brush fires.
