Autumn is upon us. It seems like only yesterday the summer season was in full bloom; warm days, lazy summer nights, picnics, cookouts and fun in the park; the kids out for summer vacation. It was a glorious experience. But now it’s almost over, the kids are back in school and we seem to be mourning the end of summer right along with them. Don’t despair! Summer will be back before you know it. For now we need to prepare for fall. There are many things that are awaiting us in the fall season; cooler weather, colorful leaves and, of course the holidays; Halloween and Thanksgiving are right around the corner. As we look forward to the season, there are things we have to prepare for to keep us secure. Make sure to follow these safety tips for fall.
As autumn approaches we need to remember to change our clocks back (if we live in time zones that are affected by Daylight Savings Time). This is a good time to remind ourselves to change the batteries in our smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. While you’re at it, check your fire extinguishers and make sure they’re fully charged. Cooler weather is upon us and it’s important to check your heating devices to make sure they’re in working order.
Fire safety is not restricted to indoors, you must also consider outdoor fire safety as well.
