It’s almost Christmas; and while many people are still in the ‘preparing’ mode, we thought we’d point out that it’s also important to be ready to handle unforeseen emergencies.
Be sure to have flashlights on hand – with fresh batteries – and keep cell phones charged and ready to use. Don’t forget to keep your car fueled. That’s a tip to keep in mind 52 weeks of the year!
Of course, some holiday activities can bring their own hazards! Should you be decorating your Christmas tree this weekend, make sure you keep it away from any open fireplace. If your tree has been up for several weeks, check the base and make sure it has water in it.
There are many other tips you should keep in mind – while driving, cooking or just plain relaxing! Remember: the Christmas season is a time when we are tempted to do things we don’t do regularly. So, if you’re exercising, hauling firewood or doing other physical activities, be sure to use common sense and don’t overtax yourself!
All of us at Safe America wish you Season’s Greetings… And look forward to serving you in the New Year! Til then, remember you can make a tax deductible donation at safeamerica.org on our home page.
