5 Semiannual Tips to Protect Your Home and Family

Now that our clocks have been set back, it’s the perfect time of year to perform a few tasks that can improve safety in your home, and on the road. In order for you to be better prepared, I gathered a few tips that I want to share with you:

  1. Replace your batteries –Smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors can save lives, IF they’re powered on by a fresh battery. Safety experts recommend replacing the batteries in these devices twice a year. In addition, don’t forget to replace the flash light batteries. You never know when severe weather might hit and you could be without power.
  2. Replace light bulbs – You’ll need some extra lighting for the long dark winter evenings ahead. Be proactive and update light bulbs so you won’t have to replace them in the dark.
  3. Prepare for cold and flu season – Will your household be prepared when winter strikes? Be sure to check your medicine cabinet now. Throw out expired medications and replenish necessary over the counter medications.
  4. Prepare a winter emergency kit for your automobile – Such kits can be a lifesaver if you are stuck out in bad weather while driving. These should include items such as: warm clothes, blanket, flashlight, batteries, water, non-perishable snacks, cat litter or sand for traction, ski hat and gloves.
  5. And while you’re out and about, pay extra attention to your surroundings – especially while walking, shopping, and driving as darkness increases around the time of afternoon rush hour.
