Fall Safety Tips
Tips for a safer fall season
As the kids go back to school and the weather changes, we offer these important reminders for a safer fall season for back-to-school. If your child comes home from school before you get home from
work, instruct him or her to never open the door to a stranger or let a phone caller know he or she is home alone. Also, make sure your child knows the code for your security system, so that his or
her departure or arrival won't set off the alarm.
Leave a light on at the front door, and sweep your walkway clear of dead leaves or debris which might cause your guests to slip. Also, remove hoses and sprinklers from the lawn children
don't always use the sidewalk! Use battery-powered lights instead of candles for jack-o'-lanterns. And keep your jack-o'-lantern clear of people's paths.
Chimneys and fireplaces should be inspected and cleaned every year. Look for a licensed professional chimney sweep in the phone book. You should also examine the exterior of your chimney for
cracks in the masonry or bricks.
