Home Fire Safety Tip:
Most people think of home fire safety when the distinct chirp from the smoke detectors or carbon monoxide detectors signals the batteries are low. This annoying noise usually serves as a wake-up call in the middle of the night when everyone's asleep.
Rest easy when you incorporate home fire safety tips that protect your family year-round:
Be proactive with home fire safety. Don’t wait for the batteries to run down in your detectors. Keep your family safe with out relying on low batteries. The National Fire Protection Association recommends changing batteries in your home detectors at least once a year. For your own peace of mind you may want to actually change them twice. A good schedule would be to change them when with the Daylight Saving Time switch.
Driving In The Fog Safety Tips
- Slow down and do not drive faster than your vision.
- Be cautious, fog can become thicker without warning and without being noticed until it is too late to react.
- Increase following distance to ensure enough reaction time and stopping distance.
- Turn on all your lights-including your hazard lights.
- Use low beam headlights and fog lights. Do not use high beams.
- Turn on your 4-way flashers to give vehicles approaching from behind a better opportunity to see and notice your vehicle.
- Use windshield wipers and defroster as necessary to maximize visibility.
- Be ready for emergency stops by other vehicles. If possible, drive in a “cushion of safety” where no other vehicles are around you.
- Turn off your cruise control so you are in control of your vehicle.
- Use the right edge of the road or roadside reflectors as a guide.
- Listen for traffic you can’t see.
- Do not change lanes or pass other vehicles, unless absolutely necessary.
- Remember that other drivers have limited sight distance and that fog makes the road wet.
- Signal early, and when you use your brakes, don’t stomp on them.
- Watch out for slow-moving and parked vehicles.
- If you cannot see, pull completely off the road, preferably at a rest area or truck stop.
- If you pull off the road, turn on your hazard flashers immediately.
