Fall is in the air and we are all getting used to Daylight Savings Time, giving us an extra hour in the day. Below is a short safety list for you to check.
- Change the batteries in smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. Don’t forget to test them to be sure they work. This can save the lives of you and your loved ones. IF the old batteries are still good, use them in the kid’s toys or electronic devices before recycling them.
- Prepare for seasonal sickness by checking to make sure you have the meds, thermometer, food and tissues needed. Be sure to throw away any outdated products.
- Be ready to keep those long, dark winter nights bright by checking/replacing burned-out light bulbs and fixtures. If you haven’t already, consider using energy-efficient LCD bulbs.
- Clean or change the filter in your furnace before cold weather begins. Have your furnace professionally tested and tuned up. Have a programmable thermostat installed to help lower your energy costs, if you don’t already have one.
- Will your family know what to do if an emergency happens? Review or create your family emergency plan. Keep phone numbers, addresses and emergency contact info near the phone.
