Are You Ready to Spring forward? Sunday, March 8, at 2AM, Daylight Savings Time will begin in most of the United States. Setting the clock forward one hour means it’s time for a spring safety check!
As you circle the house, setting clocks ahead, make time for this short safety checklist. It’ll see you into Spring Safely.
Change the clocks, change the batteries. Smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors save lives … if they’re powered on by a fresh battery. Safety experts recommend replacing smoke and carbon monoxide detector batteries twice a year–so celebrate Time Change Sunday with fresh batteries all around.
If an emergency strikes, will you be ready?
Check the first-aid kit! Spring means more activities and Summer is coming … along with bumps, scrapes and stings. Check the first aid kit for your home and vehicle and replace any missing supplies.
Check the disaster kit for your home and vehicle and replace any missing supplies. What, you don’t have a disaster kit? Well, know is your chance to build one, go to www.ready.gov for a disaster kit list.
Update phone numbers, addresses and contact information in your cellphone and on a back-up list at home.
