Fall back! It’s time again to turn your clocks back on hour and revert to Standard Time. So don’t forget to turn your clocks back one hour tonight before you go to bed. It’s also a good time to perform a home safety check.
For example, this is a good time of year to change the batteries in your home’s smoke detectors.It’s also a good time to check all your windows and doors to be sure your alarm system and all locks are in working order. Checking the lighting in your home and installing night lights for safe night time trips to the bathrooms is also a good idea. Make sure drapery and curtain cords are well out of reach of children and not looped. Make sure medications are properly labelled and stored to prevent accidental consumption or overdose. Make sure dangerous cleaning fluids are safely stored. Clear walkways and hallways of clutter and trip hazards.
Have a great Fall Season and stay safe!
