Spring Forward with Safety

  • Prepare Your Home for Spring

    Spring is a perfect time to clean out your home. Follow these steps to keep you and your family safe when cleaning this season, including tips like:

    • If you are moving furniture, keep your back straight and lift with your legs
    • Follow cleaning product safety instructions and labels
    • Use caution while walking on wet surfaces and clean up spills
    • Be sure to wear a mask while cleaning dusty areas of your home
  • Time to Change the Clocks

    daylight-savings-time.jpgDaylight Saving Time begins every year on the second Sunday in March. Clocks are set forward by one hour except in Hawaii and most of Arizona.

    When you change your clocks, check the batteries in your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors. Batteries in smoke detectors should be replaced yearly.

  • Window Safety

    With warmer temperatures arriving, it's important to practice window safety - especially in homes with young children. Participate in Window Safety Week, which is the second full week in April.

  • Stay Safe Before, During & After a Flood

    ​Floods are the most common natural disaster in the United States. Warmer weather, snow melting and heavy rains all increase the risk of flooding in the spring months.
