Most people don’t know but October is Fire Prevention Month, and with so many candles and lanterns around you can never be too careful. If you’re going to use open flame candles or jack-o-lanterns make sure they are away from flammable material and never leave them burning unattended. Make sure your house is equipped smoke detectors. Check to see if the smoke detectors are working by performing the recommended monthly test and replacing old batteries with new ones once a year. Always have a fire extinguisher accessible at your home. As a rule of thumb, if you live in a two story house you may want to keep a fire extinguisher upstairs and another downstairs. Read More
Halloween is here, and many of us have been busy finding costumes for our children, ourselves, and if you are like me, our pets. But as we send our children outside to trick or treat, costumes and candy aren’t the only things on our minds. Safety is a major concern for parents everywhere, however there are a few precautions you can take to ensure a worry-free Halloween.
Trick or treat safety:
- An adult should always accompany children under 12 years of age.
- Do not go inside anyone’s house.
- Do not go into a stranger’s automobile.
- Do not take shortcuts through backyards, alleys, or parks.
- Walk don’t run. When crossing the street look both ways.
October 22, 2009 was a big day for Microsoft—it officially introduced Windows 7 to the world. Unlike Vista, Windows 7 has received positive recognition from early adopters so far.
