With the weather changing, the sun setting earlier and kids back in school, SafeTech Alarm Systems has revealed its top safety tips for the autumn season.
Toronto, ON -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/10/2013 -- Just in time for fall, SafeTech Alarm Systems is revealing its top safety tips for the season. Autumn safety is different in many ways from summer safety. There are a number of things to watch out for during the fall season that may not have been a concern during the summer.
For example, there are fewer hours of daylight in the fall. This, of course, means more darkness and more darkness can lead to several potential issues.
Criminals are more likely to commit crimes if they feel that they cannot be seen. This means that many criminals choose to act after the sun goes down. In order to protect people and property from theft, vandalism and other crimes, SafeTech recommends that appropriate lighting is installed around homes and businesses. Motion-activated lights are an excellent way to illuminate a property while keeping energy costs down. It’s also important to illuminate driveways, walkways and other such areas where people may be walking.
The fall weather also leads to possible safety issues. Many people use space heaters or other heating devices to keep warm during the colder months. It is important to make sure that these devices are working properly before they are turned on for the season. Check all cords to ensure that they are not damaged and remember to never leave a space heater unattended. The same is true for candles. While candles can be a beautiful way to light and warm a room, they can also cause a fire if they are not used safely. Remember to keep all devices that create heat or fire away from flammable objects at all times and always keep these potentially dangerous items out of the hands of children.
While driving, it’s important to remember that children are now back in school. This often means that there will be more children on the road. Drivers should use extra caution when driving and should always be aware that children could run out onto the road at any time. Drivers should also pay attention to school buses and remember that in many regions, it is a serious crime to pass a school bus that has its lights flashing or one that has a stop sign displayed. When driving a vehicle that is not equipped with automatic headlights, be sure to turn them on as soon as dusk starts to arrive.
