Neighborhood Watch Tuesday Tip: Seasonal Tips

Hello neighbors,

It’s that time of year again when it gets dark earlier and colder. Here are some safety tips for the upcoming season:

Light Safety

  • If you have any lights on timers, you may want to reset them so that they come on at the right time.
  • If you know that it will be dark when you return home, turn on your outside lights.
  • Leave a light on inside your house so you don’t walk into a dark house.

Fire Safety

  • Get your chimneys cleaned before your first fire in your fireplace.
  • Make sure you use the correct logs if you are roasting hot dogs or marshmallows.
  • Change the batteries in your smoke detectors.

Car Safety

  • Put together a safety kit for your vehicle. Include items such as a blanket, non perishable food, water, hand warmers, flares or reflective triangles, first aid kit jumper cables. You can add pretty much anything to your kit.

Be safe,
Your Neighborhood Watch
