The summer season has finally arrived. The smell of sunscreen lingers in the air, children are free from homework for the next couple of months and the warm weather provides perfect conditions for spending time outdoors with friends and family.
June is also Home Safety Month, so the Electronic Security Association (ESA), the largest trade association serving the security industry, hopes you’ll review these safety tips to help keep yourself, and your family, safe.
According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), grilling is a major source of home fires during the summer months. Each year, there are nearly 8,600 home fires caused by gas, charcoal or solid-fueled grills. To ensure your cookout doesn’t go up in flames, remember these tips.
Hot time for burglars
You aren’t the only one with a hectic summer schedule; burglars also tend to be busier during the warmer months. The FBI reports that burglaries typically increase in June, July and August. Many homes are seen as easy targets because homeowners tend to take vacations and spend more time outdoors. But you don’t have to be a part of the statistic; here are a few ways to safeguard your valuables whether you’re traveling far from home or just hanging out in the backyard.
No matter what’s on your agenda this summer, the safety of your family should always be on the top of your list. With these tips, you can spend quality time with your family and friends all summer long.
