Daylight Savings Time is also Daylight Safety Time.

 

In most places in the United States, March 12, 2017 is Daylight Saving, when clocks are moved forward one hour. We here at Insurance Associates want to remind you it’s also a great time to improve your family’s safety.

 

Be safe in your  home

 

Health and safety agencies often use the approach of Daylight Saving Time to remind people to change the batteries in their smoke alarms. The American Red Cross suggests you test your smoke alarms and talk with your family about your fire escape plan. Whether you live in Texas, or elsewhere, practice the plan too – at least twice a year.

 

Daylight Saving is a great time to check your emergency preparedness kit to make sure it’s fully stocked with fresh supplies.

 

Carbon Monoxide a concern too

 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 400 people die annually in the US from carbon monoxide poisoning. The CDC recommends changing the batteries in your CO detectors when moving your clocks forward this Sunday.

 

The CDC says the most common symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning include headache, dizziness, weakness, nausea, vomiting, chest pain and confusion.

 

See the CDC’s site for more ways to prevent carbon monoxide exposure.

 

We here at Insurance Associates hope these tips help and that you’ll consider sharing them with the people you care about so they can live safer lives too.
