We here at Curtis Insurance would like to take a moment to say how much we appreciate each and every one of you.
As we kick off the holiday season, here are a few safety tips for you, your family and your home….
*Be comfortable but be prepared. As you very well may know, the weather is subject to change without much notice here in SW LA so no matter how warm (or chilly) it is on any given day, be sure to carry a jacket, gloves and hats OR cooler clothing to change into, to avoid getting overheated.
*Keep hand lotion, lip balm and eye drops on hand to protect skin, lips and eyes from dryness associated with colder weather.
*Extra Vitamin C helps prevent colds and flu in this ever-changing environment.
*Vehicle maintenance is equally important this time of year as we never know when we’ll have wet/icy weather.
*Check the batteries in your smoke/carbon monoxide detectors. This is especially important if you have a gas furnace, use gas space heaters, a wood-burning stove or a fireplace to heat your home. When using gas heaters, make sure you have humidifiers or some other way to increase the moisture in the air. This helps to avoid dry sinuses and throat and may alleviate breathing problems.
*Turn off decorative lights nightly and/or every time you leave the house.
*Unplug electric space heaters when not in use. You never know when a power-surge or strain on your home’s wiring might cause one of these to catch fire.
*Make sure your home, auto and life insurance policies are in good standing. With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season as well as extra spending during this time of year, these sometimes get overlooked. Don’t let that happen and cause undue hardship in the instance of a claim.
*Give the gift of life. Not sure what to get your spouse, adult child or grandchild for Christmas? Make sure the family is protected in the instance of an untimely death.
We hope these tips help you have a Blessed Holiday Season.
Until next time take care and remember.....Peace on earth and goodwill to men starts with you.
