Safety education: holiday safety
With the hustle & bustle of the holidays here, safety
sometimes takes a backseat. Now is a good time to
think about how your family will be celebrating this
year and discuss how you might handles some of these
common safety issues.
Will there be small children in your home over the
holidays? is your home still "childproof"?
Will older relatives be visiting? check for tripping
hazards, and remember, they may be carrying
prescription medication with non-child proof caps.
Are your decorations flame retardant if there will
be open flames nearby? Will you have a real tree
that will need watered? While decorating, be sure
to not overload electrical outlets and check for frayed
Will you be using open flame candles? Have you
tested your smoke alarms this month?
Will your family be cooking the holiday feast?
be sure to review our Kitchen Safety tips class.
Traveling with the family over the holidays, be safe
on the road and while staying away from home.
Decorating with live plants this holiday? Do you
have pets in your home?

This is certainly not an exhaustive list, but it
should start some discussion.
We had the children create a holiday safety checklist
years ago, we kept it with the Christmas decorations
and go over it each year.
Thanks for joining us for class this week.
We will not be having safety class in our
home over the next few weeks due to the
holidays, however there will be a review
posted next week.
Our next new class will be Jan. 8, 2015
