Spring Forward and Review Your Safety Checklist Some Spring Safety Tips, Courtesy of The Clinton Township Police and The National Safety Council Daylight Saving Time begins every year on the second Sunday in March, when we "spring ahead." We "lose" an hour when the clocks are set forward (except in Hawaii and most of Arizona), and for many, that means a tired couple of days as our bodies adjust. The consequences of fatigue can be serious, so plan accordingly. Smoke Alarms: Three out of every five home fire deaths result from fires in homes with no smoke alarms, according to the National Fire Protection Association. Test your smoke alarms every month and replace the battery at least once a year. If the alarm makes a "chirping" sound, replace the battery immediately. Check local and state ordinances regarding placement and installation. Carbon Monoxide Alarms: Anything that burns fuel can potentially become a source of carbon monoxide, an invisible, odorless gas that can kill. Check state and local ordinances for placement. The safety tips for CO detectors mirror those of smoke alarms: change the batteries, test them and interconnect them, if possible. Also, make sure vents for your gas appliances (fireplace, dryer, stove and furnace) are free and clear of snow or debris. Family Emergency Plan: The National Safety Council recommends every family have an emergency plan in place in the event of a natural disaster or other catastrophic event. Spring is a great time to review that plan with family members. Have a home and car emergency kit. Visit the FEMA website for a complete list. The emergency plan also should include: • A communications plan to outline how your family members will contact one another and where to meet if it's safe to go outside • A shelter-in-place plan if outside air is contaminated; FEMA recommends sealing windows, doors and air vents with plastic sheeting • A getaway plan including various routes and destinations in different directions • Also, make sure your first aid kit is updated. Get Rid of Unwanted Medicines: NSC recommends you take unwanted or expired medicines to a prescription drop box or take-back event near you. There are drop boxes throughout Hunterdon County, including CTPD headquarters. Getting the Urge to Clean? With the warm weather comes a desire to shine and polish your home. But when warning labels are ignored or chemicals fall into the wrong hands, disaster can occur. Learn what you can do to keep your family safe around poisons in the home. Window Safety: With warmer temperatures arriving, it's important to practice window safety – especially in homes with young children. Window Safety Week is observed on the first full week of Ap ril e ach y e ar. Find more information about window safety at: www. safety-topics/child- safety/window-safety.
