Home Safety Tips


  • Never leave candles unattended.
  • Remember to buy extra flashlight batteries.


  • Maintain ventilation around fireplaces.
  • Use space heaters only on level surfaces.
  • Keep away from furniture, curtains, water, children and pets.


  • Never use generators indoors.
  • Always follow the instructions supplied with your generator model.

Emergency Kit

When the power goes out, a flashlight, a portable charger, and spare batteries are essential.

Every time you're grocery shopping, consider getting a few extra bottles of water.

Stock up on non-perishable canned goods that you can stash away. Protein-rich foods like peanut butter and canned meats are best, as they make you feel fuller, longer.
