Back to school they go

New supplies – Check.   New clothes – Check.  New safety habits – Check.

A new school year brings a new routine filled with early morning bus rides, afterschool activities, and homework for days! Why not make sure your family gets through it safely. Make safety a habit this coming school year and commit to keeping your family free from danger. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Obey all traffic laws to and from school
  • Post emergency contact numbers on the fridge
  • Create evacuation plans for a house fire or other emergency
  • Re-stock your first aid kits
  • Have the kids memorize important numbers instead of relying on cell phone contacts
  • Never leave the house with a candle burning
