Have a Safe and Happy Holiday Season

With the holiday season upon us, many of us will celebrate with friends, family and loved ones. As we come together to mark this particular time of year, it is important to be aware of potential risks that could jeopardize our safety.

Whether you’re traveling for the holidays or hosting a gathering, here are a few tips to ensure you have a safe and happy holiday season:

Keep Your Family Safe This Holiday Season

While the holiday season is a time for celebration, it is also essential to keep your family safe. If you or a loved one is facing an emergency, please call 911 or contact local emergency services.

For all other safety concerns, here are a few steps you can take to ensure your family’s safety this holiday season:

Auto Safety

If you’re traveling for the holidays, it’s important to ensure you have reliable transportation. Before hitting the road, confirm that your vehicle is in good working order, with properly inflated tires and that all necessary maintenance has been completed. If there are any red flags, address them before your trip begins.

Maintain a roadside emergency kit in your car, including a flashlight, first aid kit, jumper cables and tools.

Finally, be especially alert of other drivers or animals on the roads. If you see an animal in the street, reduce your speed and honk to alert them. Furthermore, if you encounter a driver who is driving erratically or recklessly, give them plenty of room and avoid passing them.

Safety is always a priority; remember to take the necessary precautions and follow these tips to ensure your next road trip is as safe and enjoyable as possible.

Home Safety

If you are celebrating the holidays at home, practicing safe and responsible behaviors is important. Before the festivities begin, make sure to check your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. This will help provide an early warning in case of fire or dangerous gasses. As a precaution, keep a close eye on potential fire hazards such as open flames, hot surfaces,  overloaded circuits and flammable decorations.

If you purchased valuable gifts, consider hiding them from view. This will deter potential burglars and keep your presents safe and sound until the holiday season is over. Once the gifts have been opened, take the time to dispose of the packaging properly. This will keep burglars from targeting your home.

Finally, take the time to check your home for any weather-related dangers. Your roof, windows and foundation should all be checked for any potential issues arising from heavy rains or snowstorms. Also, clear your gutters and downspouts of debris so that water can properly drain away from your home instead of pooling up around it.
