Organizing Tips for a Safe Home

This month I’m sharing tips and resources to help you organize your family, home, and business in order to be safe and prepared for possible emergencies. Take a tour of your home and identify areas that:

  • are overcrowded – prevent objects falling & people tripping
  • are too dark – replace light bulbs, apply stick-on lights at entryways and in closets, keep a flashlight handy
  • are potentially hazardous for children, seniors, pets – check the electrical outlets and cords, lock up medications & toxic substances, keep perishables in weather and rodent-proof containers, remove area rugs or furniture with sharp edges

Here is an article that highlights additional safety organizing tips: http://www.pbs.org/hometime/house/safety/safediy.htm
