Staying Safe in Fall

Fall Safety Tips

It's that time of year again when the weather is getting cooler and it's getting dark earlier. Fall is finally here! There are a few precautions you can take at this time of year to ensure your family's safety.

Earlier nightfall can lead to decreased visibility for some. This could be why studies have shown that pedestrian accidents nearly triple in the months of October and November. Increased awareness by drivers and pedestrians is the best way to avoid an accident once it starts getting dark at rush hour.

Daylight savings time is also a great reminder to take care of you few precautionary tasks. The day you set you clocks back, make sure you also change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors and recharge your fire extinguishers. You'll want to reach out to your local fire department as some offer the recharging of fire extinguishers at no cost. Others will direct you to an outside company that can take care of it for you.

Our internal clocks can start to get a little crazy with daylight savings time. Try your best to avoid fatigue if you'll be driving. One of the leading causes of accidents is a tired driver. You'll most likely be a little tired on the first few days of the time change so make sure you're taking extra precautions when doing activities such as driving.

We all want to keep our families as safe as possible throughout the year. Ensuring that you have a proper security system can be one of the best steps you take when it comes to preventative measures. Absolute Protection Team has a wide variety of security solutions for many different home and family types.
