Spring Safety Tips
Spring is here, and what better time to celebrate the great weather than with some outdoor fun! It’s also a time for cleaning and de-cluttering items and areas in your home. Keep things safe with these top spring safety tips from SEi.
Everyone is getting that grill going! While you’re cooking up some delicious meals, make sure your grill has sufficient space on all sides, away form your home, to prevent a possible house fire. A fire monitoring system from SEi can add an extra layer of security to your home.
Out with the old, in with the new! The spring cleaning bug doesn’t usually leave us thinking about safety, but there are a few things to keep in mind when dusting off the cobwebs. Using a ladder to wash those windows? Getting items down from a stowaway area? Make sure you’re using caution, and have someone hold the ladder steady for extra balance. Wear sturdy, proper shoes, and be sure the ladder rungs are not slippery or wet before climbing.
Whipping that yard into shape can be a satisfying feat. Spring gardening and landscaping are very popular activities, so make sure when operating yard equipment, you wear safety glasses, safety gear, and use caution when filling and starting your mower.
Spring is the time for thunderstorms. Keep a close eye on severe weather and heed weather warnings, sirens, and safety tips during a storm or tornado. Always proceed to shelter when in doubt, and keep your home secure with SEi’s Central Station Monitoring, which can detect fire, water, carbon monoxide, and other things that may cause harm to your home during a storm.
